Temperate Housing Design

  1. 1. Housing Design
  2. 2. Functions in Sustainable Housing Design1) Heating & Cooling2) Water Harvesting & Drainage3) Wastewater Management4) Food Production5) Energy Production & Conservation6) Imagination
  3. 3. IMPORTANT FUNCTIONHeating & Cooling - BASICS CONDUCTION: transfer of energy through solid matter from particle to particle CONVECTION: transfer of heat energy through a gas or liquid by movement of currents RADIATION: electromagnetic waves which directly transport heat energy through spaceEVAPORATION (not true heat transfer but very useful): when a liquid changesto a gas it uses up heat and in doing so, cools an object or a liquid in contact with it
  4. 4. Heating & Cooling –THERMAL MASS & INSULATION
  5. 5. Heating & Cooling –PASSIVE SOLAR DESIGN The temperature of the ground below frost line is a steady 58°F (14°C) all year long.
