This new collection combines all six Advanced Energy Design Guides, covering K-12 schools, highway lodging, small hospital and healthcare facilities, and small office, small retail, and small warehouse and self-storage buildings on one convenient CD. The guides are designed to provide recommendations for achieving 30% energy savings over the minimum code requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999.
The recommendations in these guides allow contractors, consulting engineers, architects, and designers to easily achieve advanced levels of energy savings without having to resort to detailed calculations or analyses. Each guide also includes an expanded section of tips and approaches in a chapter called "How to Implement Recommendations."
Each guide also cross-references the how-to information with the numbered tips and the color-coded climate zone maps inside. Examples of advanced energy designs are provided in various case studies to illustrate the recommendations and to demonstrate the flexibility offered in achieving the advanced energy savings levels provided in the guides.
Single documents of each title in the Advanced Energy Design Guides series are available for free download in PDF format. The CD adds the convenience of having all six guides on a single CD for easy reference and fast search.
