Air conditioning and air handling systems typically account for 40-60% of a buildings electricity costs, air conditioning optimization algorithms have been shown to save 15-40% of cooling energy.
At the most basic level, both buildings and bodies are systems, mechanisms or interconnecting networks of components working together. Traditionally, buildings have been interpreted as static systems and bodies as dynamic systems. This means that buildings are built to withstand all anticipated loads, such as various weather conditions and the contents inside the building, and do not need to change to respond to external stimuli. Meanwhile, a body actively responds to the stimuli of the environment, making it a dynamic system.
