Two models for predicting potential savings from a domestic combined heat and power unit are developed and compared. The first, a simple spreadsheet calculation based on heating times and energy bills, gives a basic indication of the benefits of domestic combined heat and power. The second predicts the electricity and heat demand profiles of homes based on building structure, weather information and house energy bills, and simulates the operation of the unit to enable the savings for different ratings and efficiencies to be predicted.
