heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as a part of the MSc in Energy Building Design at the International Hellenic University. This study deals with the impact of varying envelope materials and consequently of occupant’s thermal conditions. The examined building is a single family apartment with three members located on two different cities: Heraklion, Crete and Florina. The scope of this research is to evaluate various wall configurations, as well passive techniques, which are described deeply in section 4.2. Hence, the dynamic simulation tool, which is used is Energy Plus (version 8.8) taking into account the following standards: ASHRAE Standard 55-2013 , EN ISO 7730 Ergonomics of the thermal environment & prEN 15251 – Indoor environmental input parameters for design and assessment of energy performance of buildings . A challenge of the present study is that the apartment should cope with not only for Florina but also for Crete, with respect to energy efficiency and thermal comfort criteria. Beyond that, further investigation is carried out, based on the potential of using different thermostats, as well as on extensive information concerning thermal conditions in each room of the house. Thereafter, some inferences of all examined scenarios are presented, which makes apparent the impact of material’s effect on the overall building efficiency, the indoor condition of the apartment and the most proper proposal, based also on economic factors, are depicted analytically in sections 6 and 7. Additionally, in last chapter is pointed out the possibility of future work.
