Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system(HVAC) is the most energy consuming module of a building’s energy system. Several times poor HVAC systems can cost significantly more compared to well-maintained systems. Building utility cost may rise three-fold compared similar buildings with efficient HVAC equipment. According to USGBC, heating and cooling systems consume the most energy in a household and any faulty systems can cause economic, environmental and indoor air qu
New buildings are often perceived to have efficient energy performance. The functionality of the mechanical and electrical systems are often not taken care of. A dysfunctional unit can affect efficiency of the entire energy system which eventually leads to escalated energy bills. Ignoring a problem in the mechanical or building management system in the earlier stages can cost a great deal after the warranty expires.
Energy efficiency analysis is important to understand the
Energy efficiency is one of the most required building criteria for a sustainable society. Achieving energy efficiency in multi-family housing communities has been a challenge for a long time because of the difficulty in controlling energy expenditure and lack of supporting facilities that are necessary for energy conservation. Lack of a systematic approach towards energy conservation is another significant problem in the building management sector. Here is a list of three si
