The reduction of the consumed energy in heating systems is one of the most important actions to be taken in order to achieve a global sustainability. To save energy is urgent, which means that the energy losses must be reduced. In Spain it is especially important as the construction rate is almost the half of that in Europe. It's designed a distributed solution by means of a multi-agent system, and a central control unit responsible for minimising the energy consumption. The central control unit (CCU) includes a Fuzzy Model ‑for estimating the energy needs- and a Fuzzy controller ‑to set the power rate of each heater-. The CCU is responsible for distributing the available power over the set of heaters. This solution is the preliminary study to be included in a heating system product of a local company.
