In this exercise, students will learn how to:
|Figure 3.2.1 - Creating design alternatives to compare potential wall assemblies|
- Using the classroom unit model analyzed in the tutorial, create design alternatives to explore the energy use impacts of using windows with different U-values.
- Create additional design alternatives to explore the impact of using roof assemblies with different R-values.
- Analyze the estimates for the different wall, window, and roof alternatives. Then create design alternatives to evaluate the differences between systems combining the worst-performing the best-performing alternatives.
