Building Science / Energy Audit Building science is the study of a buildings interactions between the structure and its components. A structures occupants, mechanical systems, and the surrounding outdoor environment all play a role in the performance of a building. Energy Audit The process of identifying energy conservation opportunities.
Building Science Design & Development Climate Thermal dynamics Insulation Thermal boundary Air leakage Ventilation Heating and cooling Humidity and moisture sources Stack effect and fans
WHAT IS ENERGY? THE MEASURABLE QUANTITY OF HEAT WORK LIGHT
ASHRAE 90.1 – WHATS NEXT? New ChangeEffective DateReference Section 2010 Min Efficiency Standards up to 63 tons Jan 2010 Federal Section 6 IEER part load metric replaces IPLVJan 2010 Federal Section 6.2.2 Addendum y, au Exhaust air energy recovery scope mandated Jan 2010 State Section 22.214.171.124 Addendum e Manual dampers not allowedJan 2010 State Section 126.96.36.199 Addendum b Low leakage economizer dampersJan 2012 State Section 188.8.131.52 2 Speed Fan requirement for single zone systems > 10 tons Jan 2012 State Section 6, Addendum n Multiple VAV control changes: Re-Heat, DDC, Dehumidification Jan 2012 State Section 6, Addendum b,c,h, bh, bx
HIGHER TIER STANDARDS AND GUIDES –LEED (just revised and will be revised again in 2012) –New Building Institute Core Performance Guide –Commercial EnergyStar (being revised) –FEMP (being revised) –CEE - Consortium for Energy Efficiency (being revised) –ASHRAE 189.1 and ASHRAE 189.2 (new) –ASHRAE Building Rating System (new) –ASHRAE Advanced Energy Design Guides (new) –California Green Building Standards Code (CALGREEN) (new) –GBI - Green Building Assessment Protocol for Commercial Buildings (new) –IECC - International Green Construction Code (IGCC) (new) Go to Carrier.com for up to the minute updates
FUTURE EFFICIENCY Single Phase Requirements < 5 tons Effective dates: May 1, 2013 for non-weatherized furnaces Jan 1, 2015 for air conditioners & heat pumps, including weatherized furnaces (gas packs) Effective dates of subsequent standards: 2019 for non-weatherized furnaces and 2022 for air conditioners/heat pumps and weatherized furnaces NEW
ENERGY STAR / CEE / ASHRAE 189 Multiple higher efficiency standards are being developed and revised –Not mandatory at the state levels –EnergyStar is now required on Federal buildings (Jan 2007), may be required on state buildings –Often tied to rebates

Conductivity = k Amount of heat in BTUH flowing through a one inch thickness of a material of uniform consistency when the area of the material is one square foot and when the difference in temperature between the faces of the material is one degree F.
Conductivity = k One square foot, one inch thick, one deg F
Conductance = C Amount of heat in BTUH flowing through an area of one square foot of a material, having a certain specified thickness, when the difference in temperature between the two faces of the material is one degree F.
Thermal Resistance = R Defined as the reciprocal of the heat transfer coefficient. The higher the number of the heat transfer coefficient, the more readily will the material transfer heat and the more rapid the heat flow will be. Resistance is just the opposite of the coefficient of heat transfer.
Thermal Resistance = R Which material will have a higher R value? Face brick or common brick?
Thermal Resistance = R Which material will have a higher R value? Asphalt shingles or 3/8 plywood?
ADDING R VALUES YOU HAVE A CEILING AREA OF 1,000 FT. SQ. - R-38, WITH A PULL- DOWN ATTIC STAIRS WITH A PLYWOOD BOARD ACCESS 10 FT. SQ. - R-0.5. HOW WILL THIS EFFECT MY OVERALL R VALUE?
ADDING R VALUES 1,000 FT.SQ. TOTAL 990 FT.SQ.R-38U = 0.0263 10 FT.SQ.R-0.5U = 2.0 (990 x.0263)+(10 x 2) = 1,000 (26.037)+(20) = 1,000 46.037=U-.046037 1,000 U-.046037= R-21.7
Overall coefficient of heat transfer, given in BTUH per square foot of heat transfer surface area, per degree F temperature difference What is the U Factor ?
ADD the R values: R = Total Resistance R T = R 1 + R 2 + R 3 + R 4, etc. Calculate the U Factor ?
INVERT the Total Resistance: U = 1 / R T Calculate the U Factor ?
A wall has the following characteristics: Outside surface coefficient – 0.17 Brick, 4 thick – 0.40 Air space filled with insulation – 5.30 Gypsum wallboard – 0.45 Inside surface coefficient – 0.68 U = ? Calculate the U Factor ?
What is the heat flow for the wall (previous slide) that is 10 high 150 long, when the outdoor temperature is 95F and the indoor temperature is 72F? BTUH T = Area x U x (T 1 – T 2 ) Calculate the Heat Flow
THE TASK OF TRANSFERING HEAT Which process transfers the most heat? 1.50 gallons of water @ 32 degF changing to 416.5# of ice @32 degF 2.20 gallons or water @ 212 degF to steam at 212 degF 3.30# of steam @ 212 degF condenses to 3.6 gallons of water at 80 degF
