1.2.3 Adjust the temperature of the thermostat properly

1.1.3 Adjust the temperature of the thermostat properly   Description Each degree the thermostat is raised above 21° (recommended set point for winter) implies an unnecessary waste of energy of up to 6-8%. While in summer, each degree below 25° (recommended set point for summer) implies an overconsumption of around 6-8%. [...]

1.2.4 Adding or repairing HVAC distribution system insulation

1.2.4 Adding or repairing HVAC distribution system insulation Description A correct thermal insulation of HVAC distribution ducts and pipes (including corners) reduces energy losses in distribution and improves the performance of the systems since the equipment works with fluids at temperatures close to the design temperature. Benefits The [...]

1.1.11 Adding a low Emissivity (E) window film

1.1.11 Adding a low Emissivity (E) window film Description A low E film is an extremely thin layer of metal oxides, in the order of nanometers, which, if it is applied on the glass, provides a capacity of reinforced thermal insulation. The film reflects inward a part of the incident long-wave energy (heating), [...]

1.1.7 Correct use of internal solar shading

1.1.7 Correct use of internal solar shading Description Internal solar shadings allow the protection of interior space from direct radiation. The user should close the shading when direct solar radiation is entering the building in cooling seasons, while in heating seasons shadings should be opened to permit that solar radiation and natural [...]
