Energy Efficiency for Building Construction Technology.
Scharmann, Larry, Ed.
Intended primarily but not solely for use at the postsecondary level, this curriculum guide contains five units of materials on energy efficiency that were designed to be incorporated into an existing program in building construction. The following topics are examined: conservation measures (residential energy use and methods for reducing residential energy costs); construction techniques for energy efficient buildings (techniques for planning and constructing an energy efficient building, taking advantage of local topography, climate considerations, and complying with standard construction practices and state/local building codes); insulation materials and R-values; construction materials and their application (selection of window, door, and framing materials); and passive and active solar energy. Covered in each lesson are unit rationale, necessary advanced preparations, anticipated instructional time, guidelines for implementing the unit, unit activities, and unit references. (MN)
