The use of modern industrial automation can improve the efficiency of heating systems separate buildings. The article presents the experience of using an automated system for monitoring the condition and control of heating university buildings. The system comprises a standard industrial process automation equipment for heating and developed local and dispatch software in the software package LabView. This article describes the functionality of the system for monitoring the condition and management of individual heat consumption of buildings by various laws, as well as recommendations on the stages of its implementation in universities. Using an automated system considered more insightful functioning heating individual buildings, allows to determine their energy efficiency performance, simplifies the process of formation of documentation on heat consumption of the university.
