Data from the 2015 residential energy consumption survey (recs) show that the majority of american households use one of three types of equipment as their main source of heat during the winter: natural gas furnaces, electric furnaces, or electric heat pumps. Estimating the fuel consumption of boilers and furnaces through burner cycle timing consumption, in residential central heating equipment the first method is through the use of a smart thermostat that controls the hvac equipment the second method is through the use of an estimate burner on -time by knowing how long the “heat.

If you use just one fuel for heating, and nothing else, then the annual usage of that fuel is the number you’re looking for, and should be quite easy to find and the type of fuel you use, you will work out your energy consumption in any number of different units to keep things simple, we are only using kilowatt-hours (kwh) in this post. The heating energy requirement and fuel consumption calculations are based parametrically on single and double-glazing, various type of material used, i, n, p, gap and dh the estimation method based on the air temperature records used in this paper for istanbul can easily be applied similarly for any part of the world.
