Cost Savings and Comfort for Existing Buildings - 6th Edition
by John Krigger
Residential Energy is widely recognized as one of the best textbooks available on home energy conservation. It's used by hundreds of colleges and technical schools across North America.
Residential Energy is an essential reference manual for home energy raters, energy auditors, weatherization technicians, carpenters, heating and air-conditioning specialists, insulation contractors, plumbers, electricians, and home-improvement enthusiasts.
This book introduces readers to a home's energy-related components, then explains all the important possibilities for energy conservation. Readers will learn that effective energy conservation requires a whole-house approach that addresses the biggest energy wasters first. The focus is on the background and principles that underlay all effective energy retrofits.
This NEW edition of Residential Energy is one complete reference book on energy efficiency for residential buildings. In addition to everything in 5th edition, this 6th edition provides new information on ASHRAE ventilation standards, better explanations of heating and cooling calculations, and new appendices. There is also an enhanced section on lighting as well as an improved glossary and index. This edition is still packed full of essential information on energy consumption, analyzing energy costs, and other energy-auditing information. This is an important reference tool that should be in every energy specialist’s library.
