Because the demand for environmentally friendly architecture is increasing. . . Today's it's essential for architects to grasp all aspects of the building process related to energy savings. This guide provides that understanding, with non-technical discussions of available energy-saving techniques for commercial, institutional, educations, health care, and high-rise residential buildings. Descriptions of techniques from the architect/designer's perspective feature case studies with expected dollar savings, practical considerations, and locations where the techniques have been applied. You'll learn about the latest insulation systems without thermal bridges. . .glass and glazing systems. . .air retarder systems. . .lighting techniques. . .heating and cooling equipment. . .controls. . .and uses of cogeneration and heat recovery. Turn here for useful guidance on how to: Perform calculations for walls, roofs, glazing, and lighting; Increase the life of your walls through air retarders; Reduce solar gain without major loss of daylight transmittance; Avoid excessive oversizing of HVAC systems and plant; Ensure all energy-efficient systems are fully integrated into a design. You'll also find out about energy-analysis computer programs such as ENERGY-10, a graphic, easy-to-use program that is effective at the schematic design stage.
