This paper focuses on the intelligent management of domestic hot water (DHW) systems in buildings. Thermal installations are studied in depth due to the high percentage they represent in energy consumption, moreover, they usually lack management systems. To address this problem, firstly a functional model of a DHW installation is created, then a study is carried out on the current management model applied and the energy losses that it entails. Once this is achieved, a proposal is made for an intelligent management system based on fuzzy logic that controls resources automatically to improve its efficiency. The system is validated by applying it to real data obtained from a high-end hotel in the island of Tenerife.
