Enhancing Residential Building Operation through its Envelope
MetadataShow full item record
In this study heat loss is evaluated with the modeling software of Iranian Construction Engineering Organization, for both with and without insulation in the building. Of course the evaluation is in accordance with the laws of this organization, which support environmental and constructional matters. Also the amounts of energy consumption for these two states are compared and a substantial economy of energy consumption is presented. Eventually, results represent that 32% in heat load and 25% in cooling load of the building can be economized. And also most energy loss is related to the windows and the roof of the building.
