Energy Conservation Measures for the Charles E. Shea Senior High School, Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Public Service Report.
New England Innovation Group, Providence, RI.
Presented is a study of energy conservation opportunities in a Rhode Island high school. With the aid of an infrared camera system, researchers documented heat losses that were not evident to the naked eye. Each infrared thermogram obtained showed one or more types of heat loss and identified the specific sections of the building where the problems occurred. Results demonstrated thermographic inspection to be an effective analytical technique for appraising a building's thermal efficiency. These analyses of heat loss, together with concurrent studies of the facility's heating system and roof moisture, are presented in this report and form the basis for energy conservation recommendations. Offered are low, moderate, and high cost options for reducing heating costs. (Author/WB)
