MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines the energy efficiency of residential construction in College Station from 1981-1986. Housing sizes, location, and construction activity by various contractors are described using data summarized from the College Station building permit book for this period. Site visits were made to apartments in complexes with over 20 percent of the multi-family units built during 1981-1986 and to selected single-family houses built by contractors responsible for over 25 percent of the single-family construction during this period. The information obtained on these visits was used to define the thermal. characteristics and systems of base cases representative of below-average and average multi-family units, and average and above average single-family units.
