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), [...]

1.2.3 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 [...]

1.2.6 Use of free-cooling

1.2.6 Use of free-cooling Description Free cooling consists in using the outside air cooling capacity to renew and cool the inside air of a room, reducing the energy consumption of the cooling equipment. As consequence, the system only switches on extraction and air conditioning fans, avoiding starting up the compressor of the [...]
