Simulation and Evaluation of Passive Energy Technology in Residential Space
Comparisons are presented of predictions from a reasonably complete computer model simulating the heat transfer in residential spaces to actual measurements taken from a room space configured with two passive energy-conserving technologies: radiant barrier insulation and highly reflective ceramic paint. Closely correlated temperature responses are presented in comparative graphs validating the model as a quantitative design tool for use in previewing the merits of these new technology products. Energy usage data from a model home is included that indicates cost recovery in less than one year and supports the use of the energy-saving technologies.
