(1.0 CEUs) Good buildings provide adequate comfort to their occupants. Occupants experience discomfort, sub-optimal health, and reduced productivity in buildings that don’t provide adequate comfort. This lesson covers how the thermal envelope, HVAC systems, and occupant behaviors affect the heating and cooling performance of buildings. You’ll explore these important topics.
- Seasonal space-conditioning demand.
- How the building envelope affects heating-and-cooling demand.
- Cost-effective whole-building efficiency strategies.
