With the increased attention being paid to the use of fossil fuels and release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, there is some urgency going into the management of energy use in buildings of all types. It has been found that forty-five percent of energy use in the UK comes from consumption in the form of building heating, building cooling, hot water provision, communications devices, lighting and cooking. Management and reduction of these channels is vital to the efforts at reducing our carbon footprint.

The heating, cooling, and hot water management can be helped through the use of ultrasonic heat meters. These instruments can be used to monitor and record the flow rates and temperatures of fluids through pipework in a building. By measuring the heat being put through the structure at various points, and noting peak times of use, engineers can develop an accurate pattern of consumption and distribution. With that type of data, engineers and building managers can plan changes…
