Contents • Project Idea • Procedure Used - Survey • Analysis of the Responses / Feedback • Conclusions
Project IdeaMainly revolves around people’s idea of an Eco friendly Homes • Eco-Friendly: having little or no impact on the Native Eco System. • The most extreme eco-friendly houses of the future reduce the environmental impact on the planet and demonstrates how ‘Less means more Quality Living’
What is Zero Energy Home? A ZEH combines state-of-the-art, energy efficient construction techniques and equipment with renewable energy systems to return as much energy as it takes on an annual basis. Goal: • Reduce carbon footprint • Increase energy efficiency
SURVEY WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO THE PEOPLE?
WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO THE PEOPLE? RESPONSES -Which energy improvements make sense for my situation? -What is the real payback of each improvement? - Does renewable energy make financial sense given the other improvements I plan to make? - What is the best heating and cooling system for my situation and preferences? - What is the ‘right size’ for my system so it will be most efficient? - Will the rooms all be the same comfortable temperature? - What are my options for healthy indoor air quality?
Analysis • People have a clear understanding of Zero net energy homes. • Zero Energy Homes are homes which are often equipped with solar power and are designed to generate more energy than they consume.
Conclusion – Major Parameters Using Renewable Energy: approach your project from a true whole building perspective and provide a comprehensive strategy for the building envelope, heating, cooling, hot water, appliances, lighting, ventilation, energy production, and more. Right Sized Equipment Reduces Costs and Increases Performance: Improper HVAC sizing and layout can lead to humidity and mold problems, system inefficiency, and short cycling with mechanical failure and shorter system lifespan. We right-size and design the systems to avoid these problems, ensure the best performance, and reduce costs associated with installing a bigger system than is needed. Sustainable Options: alternative choices that can either reduce or eliminate fossil fuel use completely on your site. Potential targets can be to reduce or offset your carbon footprint, create a fossil fuel free site, or incorporate renewable energy systems to partially or completely off-set annual energy consumption (zero net energy).
