The Fourth R. Resourcefulness in School Energy Conservation. SEED: Schoolhouse Energy Efficiency Demonstration.
Tenneco, Inc., Houston, TX.
An energy audit is a building inspection that, when complete, provides a profile of the building's energy usage. The energy audit determines how energy is used; simple maintenance and operating procedures to conserve energy; and the need, if any, for purchase of new energy saving equipment or modifications to the building. Schoolhouse Energy Efficiency Demonstration (SEED) was initiated in response to the pressing need, in the face of rising energy costs, for schools to use energy wisely. Twenty demonstration schools in the 15 states were selected for the program because of similarity to other structures in the surrounding area. This pamphlet presents some of the common problems discovered in the audits. These problems provide examples of low-cost, quick-fix opportunities for energy conservation. Some of these items apply to homes and other structures as well. (Author/MLF)
