Summary

One of the leading references on the design of a building's environmental controls has just gotten better.

For years, Heating, Cooling, Lighting has supplied architects and students with the strategies needed for initial design decisions for building systems. The book looks at how to design the form of the building itself to take advantage of natural heating, cooling, and lighting and how to best utilize active mechanical equipment to satisfy the needs not provided by nature. This new edition has been expanded and updated to reflect the latest practices for low energy building design, and information on integrating technical strategies at the schematic design stage.

Reflecting the latest developments, codes, standards, and rating systems for energy efficiency, this Fourth Edition provides detailed information concerning thermal comfort, mechanical heating and cooling systems, climate, passive heating and cooling, shading, site planning, daylight and artificial lighting, and conservation.
