RESUMO

The climate control solutions encompassed in the "Low-Ex", or low exergy, concept have a promising future in achieving efficient facilities aimed at meeting the objectives of Directive 2010/31/UE. These systems make use of heat transfer fluids at temperatures close to the indoor environment and limit the waste consumption of the systems, such as pumps and fans. Moreover this technology allows a very interesting combination with renewable energy sources. In addition to this, the optimization of energy consumption in buildings depends largely on the degree of user comfort. In this context, the discomfort, generated by unfavorable radiant mean temperatures, conditions the use of the thermostats set point. Low exergy systems, which use moderate thermal levels and encourage radiant exchange, may offset these situations naturally optimizing the temperature set point.
