Energy Auditing Practices: A Guide to
Benchmarking, Auditing, and Retrofitting Residential, Commercial,
and Industrial Buildings is a comprehensive guide to the
entire energy auditing process, from benchmarking and developing
energy conservation goals to implementing system changes and
verifying the results.
The manual begins with an
overview of the energy auditing process and the numerous codes,
standards, and guidelines involved.
Next, separate sections
deal with the unique aspects of conducting audits on either
Residential Buildings, or Commercial and Industrial Buildings.
Each section concludes with
examples of the data analyses needed to determine the energy savings
from the retrofits.
Topics presented in this
manual include energy audit types; preplanning; retrofit
cost-effectiveness; energy audit reports; common benchmarks; audit
safety; residential HVAC system equipment, water heaters, and
lighting; commercial and industrial HVAC system equipment and
lighting; retrofit modeling; and system recommissioning.
This textbook complements a HVAC technician's
skills by extending them to working on energy conservation measures
in both residential and commercial/industrial buildings.
