HOW TO RUN AN ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME
David of Partners Energy is often called on to give advice and conduct energy audits by clients who build well designed energy efficient houses but find their energy use is greater than expected.
David often finds that the clients haven’t received instructions on the best way to use the building according to its design. He is able to save them up to 50% of the total energy bill just by adjusting the use of the ventilation, window coverings, air conditioning settings, pv systems, pool pumps and hot water systems in relation to the local climate.
The Fifth Estate’s Cameron Jewell has written an excellent article on the findings of a research study from Michigan State University on this which found that more than 50 per cent of potential energy savings from energy efficient homes can be lost if users don’t know how to use the buildings properly.
