Providing for Energy Efficiency in Homes and Small Buildings, Part I.
American Association for Vocational Instructional Materials, Athens, GA.
Presented is part one of a training program designed to educate students and individuals in the importance of conserving energy and to provide for developing skills needed in the application of energy-saving techniques that result in energy efficient buildings. Alternatives are provided in this program to allow for specific instruction in energy-saving methods and procedures, or for integration with construction courses. It may also be used for self-paced instruction. The materials are divided into three parts: (1) Understanding and practicing energy conservation in buildings; (2) Determining amount of energy lost or gained in a building; and (3) Determining which practices are more efficient and installing materials. Major topics presented in part one include understanding the importance of energy, developing a concern for conserving energy, understanding the use of energy in buildings, care and maintenance of energy efficient buildings, and developing energy-saving habits.
