The order of savings potential and key characteristics of our heating strategies. The practical prediction strategy represents a system approximating the oracle strategy, however potentially suffering from prediction inaccuracies, which affect either the comfort or the savings. If the home is predicted to be unoccupied while it is occupied, it will not be heated, although the inhabitants are present. If the home is predicted to be occupied although it is unoccupied, it will be heated unnecessarily.
