Designers tend to err on the side of caution. There is less risk in
overdesigning than underdesigning. Accordingly systems are often
overpowered and therefore wasteful.

Often the most convenient operating strategy is for switches to
default to onwhereas manual onand automatic offis the more
energy efficient provided safety is not compromised.

Small demands like domestic hot water can require whole systems

Inadequate monitoring systems can fail to identify progressive failure.

Intrinsic faults in the system may remain hidden but may nevertheless
adversely affect energy use without any detectable effect on service.
