Profile Info

Bastien has created his own heating system for his cold family home. His invention can move heat from one heat source in the house to all other areas, based on each individual room’s heat and humidity. Bastien installed sensors all over his house and created a server that can do all the heating calculations for you based on your heating needs.

 

What inspired you to create your project?

It was the middle of winter and my family and I were freezing. We bought a wood burner for the house, but it would only heat the room it was in and not the rest of the house. I wanted to find a way to move the heat around and control its distribution.

 

What is the best thing about the ASB Bright Sparks competition to you?

It is a great way to share your project and ideas and what you are proud of. It’s something that you spend a lot of time on and it’s great to get recognition for it.
