✏Heating Cooling Lighting Book Summary : Sustainable environmental control through building design Heating, Cooling, and Lighting is the industry standard text on environmental control systems with the emphasis on sustainable design. By detailing the many factors that contribute to the comfort in a building, this book helps architects minimize mechanical systems and energy usage over the life of the building by siting, building design, and landscaping to maximize natural heating, cooling, and lighting. This new fourth edition includes new information on integrated design strategies and designing for the Tropics. Resources include helpful case studies, checklists, diagrams, and a companion website featuring additional cases, an image bank, and instructor materials. Designing buildings that require less energy to heat, cool, and light means allowing the natural energy of the sun and wind to reduce the burden on the mechanical and electrical systems. Basic design decisions regarding size, orientation, and form have a great impact on the sustainability, cost, and comfort of a building. Heating, Cooling, and Lighting provides detailed guidance for each phase of a design project. Readers will: Understand the concept of sustainability as applied to energy sources Review the basic principles of thermal comfort, and the critical role of climate Learn the fundamentals of solar responsive design, including active and passive solar systems as well as photovoltaics Discover how siting, architectural design, and landscaping can reduce the requirements for mechanical and electrical systems In sustainable design, mechanical, and electrical systems should be used to only accomplish what the architect could not by the design of the building itself. With this in mind, designers require a comprehensive understanding of both the properties of energy and the human factors involved in thermal comfort. Heating, Cooling, and Lighting is the complete, industry-leading resource for designers interested in sustainable environmental control.
✏Heating Cooling Lighting Book Summary : One of the leading references on the design of a building's environmental controls has just gotten better. For years, Heating, Cooling, Lighting has supplied architects and students with the strategies needed for initial design decisions for building systems. The book looks at how to design the form of the building itself to take advantage of natural heating, cooling, and lighting and how to best utilize active mechanical equipment to satisfy the needs not provided by nature. This new edition has been expanded and updated to reflect the latest codes, standards, and energy-efficiency rating systems.
✏Heating Cooling Lighting Book Summary : Using a qualitative rather than a quantitative approach, presents detailed information based on concepts, rules, guidelines, intuition, and experience for architects in the areas of heating, cooling, and lighting at the schematic design stage. The data explored supports a three-tiered approach--load avoidance, using natural energy sources, and mechanical equipment. Among the topics covered are shading, thermal envelope, passive heating and cooling, electric lighting, and HVAC. Case studies illustrate how certain buildings use techniques at all three tiers for heating, cooling, and lighting. An appendix lists some of the more appropriate computer programs available to the architect for analysis at the schematic design stage.
📒Environmental Control Systems ✍ Fuller Moore
✏Environmental Control Systems Book Summary : A text/reference for Architect and Architectural Engineering students taking a course on Energy Methods. Includes passive solar heating and cooling, day-lighting, etc.
📒Heating Cooling Lighting ✍ Norbert M. Lechner
✏Heating Cooling Lighting Book Summary : Heating, Cooling, Lighting, the leading guide to environmental control systems design for over 25 years, provides future architects and practicing professionals with the knowledge and tools needed to design a sustainable built environment at the schematic design stage. This book treats heating, cooling, and lighting not as isolated topics, but as integrated parts towards manipulating the environment to achieve net zero consumption. Responding to current industry trends, this Fifth Edition has been completely restructured based on net zero design strategies. Reflecting the latest developments in codes, standards, and rating systems for energy efficiency, this Fifth Edition includes three new chapters: Retrofits - best practices for efficient energy optimization in existing buildings, Integrated Design - strategies for synergizing passive and active design, and Design Tools - how to utilize the best tools to benchmark a building’s sustainability and net zero potential; as well as an extensively updated Lighting chapter. Instructor's have access to an Instructor's Manual that includes exercises, projects, discussion questions, and web resources.

✏ISBN : UOM:39015023889671
✏Available Language : English, Spanish, And French
✏Economic Impact Analysis of Emergency Heating Cooling and Hot Water Restrictions Book Summary : In the event of a severe petroleum supply interruption or in order to fulfill obligations of the United States under the International Energy Program, the President may implement one or more emergency energy conservation contingency plans as provided for by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act. This report describes the economic and environmental impacts of a plan imposing emergency restrictions on heating, cooling, lighting, and hot water temperatures in public, commercial and industrial buildings. The proposed plan, as specified for the analysis, would affect an estimated five million buildings.

📒Handbook Of Energy Efficiency In Buildings ✍ Umberto Desideri
✏Handbook of Energy Efficiency in Buildings Book Summary : Handbook of Energy Efficiency in Buildings: A Life Cycle Approach offers a comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the subject with a further focus on the Life Cycle. The editors, renowned academics, invited a diverse group of researchers to develop original chapters for the book and managed to well integrate all contributions in a consistent volume. Sections cover the role of the building sector on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, international technical standards, laws and regulations, building energy efficiency and zero energy consumption buildings, the life cycle assessment of buildings, from construction to decommissioning, and other timely topics. The multidisciplinary approach to the subject makes it valuable for researchers and industry based Civil, Construction, and Architectural Engineers. Researchers in related fields as built environment, energy and sustainability at an urban scale will also benefit from the books integrated perspective. Presents a complete and thorough coverage of energy efficiency in buildings Provides an integrated approach to all the different elements that impact energy efficiency Contains coverage of worldwide regulation
📒Buildings And Climate Change ✍ Pekka Huovila
✏Buildings and Climate Change Book Summary : The building sector contributes up to 40 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions, mostly from energy use during the life time of buildings. Identifying opportunities to reduce these emissions has become a priority in the global effort to reduce climate change. This publicatiion provides an overview of current knowledge about greenhouse gas emissions from buildings, and presents opportunities for their minimisation.
