Application: Smart energy scheduling of hvac system during on-peak hours (Patent ID: US20230315135A1)

The patent filed by Holdings Inc. describes systems and techniques for monitoring energy use habits of consumers. The method involves obtaining temperature data from a monitored property, generating an energy model based on this data, obtaining current temperature data, and using the energy model to generate a duty-cycle for the HVAC system to cycle off and on during on-peak hours. This approach aims to optimize energy usage and efficiency by pre-cooling or pre-heating the property before predicted high energy usage periods.

The computer-implemented method and system outlined in the patent involve maintaining data on energy usage thresholds, requested temperatures, and current temperatures of the monitored property. By analyzing temperature differences and predicting HVAC system adjustments, the method instructs the system to pre-cool or pre-heat the property before high energy usage periods. Additionally, an energy model is used to generate duty-cycles for the HVAC system during these periods, with adjustments made based on actual temperature proximity. The patent also includes provisions for user interfaces to customize duty-cycles and mitigate grid effects. Overall, the technology aims to enhance energy efficiency and consumer comfort through proactive HVAC system management.
