So, what does intelligent heating system mean?
The room’s air temperature felt cold in the morning.
The room is in the corner of the building and the outdoor temperature was in the night -15 °C. During the temperature night drop the room’s indoor temperature decreased too much and the heating system has not enough power to heat it up again in the morning.
Predictive: What will happen?
Prescriptive: How can we influence it?
The upcoming night will be as cold as the night before and the room’s indoor temperature will be too low again tomorrow morning.
The indoor temperature of the corner room should not be decreased at all. It is more convenient to sustain day-time indoor air temperatures than decrease them. Hence, the user is satisfied in the morning.
