The invention generally relates to thermal management of individual units to save energy and more particularly to heating, cooling and ventilation (HCV) of individual units. The invention more precisely relates to an automated energy saving bed integrated with HCV to save energy during a sleep at night or rest at day.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION:

With reference to the prior arts, the Indian patent application numbered 1185/DEL/2004 the stated system design, it claims to save energy by using window air conditioner within the room, which instead of saving energy within the bed, it increase the energy consumption due to use of window air-conditioning over the bed within the bedroom.

The other prior art WO/2003/090585 claims , the system which is having mattress and blanket within which hot and cold air is circuited using ducts, which says about comfort level rather than energy saving within the bedroom.

One more prior art reference to the Indian patent application 3137/mum/2010 which is modified by the inventor, with controls and enhanced energy efficacy with quality of air and comfort.

The present invention overcomes all of the aforesaid limitations encountered by the above mentioned related prior arts by employing an automated energy saving bed integrated to the heating, cooling and ventilation (HCV) of the individual units to the required bed dome tonnage.

OBJECT OF THE INVENTION:

With reference to all above prior arts the present invention of automated energy efficient bed has following objectives to solve the limitations of the conventional technology beds.

The principal objective of the invention is the use of energy saving bed. A collapsible dome made from non- tearable insulated plastic or woven cloth, opens or closed over a bed, using automation with sensor, voice recognition, with real time clock, alternatively manually by remote control or manually pulling over a pulley. It saves energy equal to ratio of volume of room to volume of dome, during a sleep at night or rest at day.

Another objective of the present invention is to provide a ductless ventilation system which provides fresh air and exhaust air with ductless installation. The heat exchange takes place within ventilation which provides hot and cold air. Air quality from the outdoor improves with the installation of the ductless ventilation system.

Another objective of the present invention is the application of the multiple filters to the ductless ventilation system for improving the quality of air. The quality of air inside any confined space is also improved by the application of sensors to the ductless ventilation system.

Another objective of the present invention is to install multiple models under same concepts and the design of different models as per ability of space. The quality of air is maintained with a dome using sensors. Faster cooling and heating is achieved by reducing the volume of the dome in comparison to the volume of the room.

Another objective of the invention is the integration of the applications like internet of things (IOT). The integration of Wi-Fi/z-wave wireless controls the fault intimation email and/or sms alert and log of fault. Also Wi-Fi is employed to collect real time data input. The application of the integrated application with IOT provides fire and smoke detection, alert and alarm. Wireless speakers are also installed for audio, alerts, services, controlled led lighting and the like.
