Energy Efficiency Home Design
Excessive use of energy and our lifestyle preferences on energy usage have negative impacts on our future. By performing simple tasks, such as turning on lights, watching television, washing dresses and heating/cooling made by any electronic system energy is consumed every day. During summer season of extreme weather conditions, energy consumption will become more and more. So now for our society saving energy is an important point of issue. The subject of research related to sustainability of energy consumption. Energy crisis is a goal of sustainable construction and for that it has been examined about the possibility of the smart home. To achieve this smart home overall mass-market adoption is required. For smart home certain parameters like affordable price as well as many decision approval, limited budget and more complex for design team is only due to tight time line. Beginning of the design process by the architect/engineers for various design alternatives for smart home they are using HEED, a Home Energy Efficiency Design tool. In this paper we discuss how this tool will help on design issue and decision maker and thermal comfort with low energy usage. This design tool for early planning can help to contractor, builder and architecture for the upcoming challenge of 2030 by measuring the details data on spreadsheet.
