Building Energy Use and Environmental Monitoring

Energy and Environmental Monitoring at the Bondor InsulLiving® House

Building Energy Use and Environmental Monitoring

Project Summary

In 2011 leading Australian building products business Bondor constructed the eight-star energy efficient InsulLiving® Home in 
Burpengary, Brisbane.

As part of the project, the company wished to monitor the energy usage and environmental conditions both inside and outside the InsulLiving Home® so that designers, builders and home owners could clearly see the energy and cost saving benefits that the InsulWall® and SolarSpan® products could provide.

Pacific Data Systems designed, commissioned and assisted in the installation of a turn-key data logging solution to monitor energy usage and environmental conditions both inside and outside of the Bondor InsulLiving® Home.

The solution is driven by a dataTaker® DT85 data logger with an additional Channel Expansion Module to accommodate the large number of sensors that were required for the monitoring station.

The solution monitors the following parameters:

 

  • Building Energy Consumption
  • External Air Temperature
  • External Wind Speed & Direction
  • External Barometric Pressure
  • External Relative Humidity
  • External Rainfall
  • Internal Humidity
  • Internal Temperature
  • Internal CO2
