Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings

Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings 

Walter T. Grondzik

Preference :

The buildings of today contribute to negative global consequences that will impact future generations, and our approach to mechanical and electrical systems must consider how best to mini- mize and mitigate—if not negate—such negative environmental impacts. Thus, on-site resources— daylighting, passive solar heating, passive cooling, solar water heating, rainwater, wastewater treatment, photovoltaic electricity—share the spotlight with traditional off-site resources (natural gas, oil, the electrical grid, 

Most of the systems presented in this book involve energy consumption. As North American society has moved from its early reliance on renewable energy sources (wind, water, and horsepower) to today’s seemingly endless addiction to nonrenewable fossil fuels, it has also added vastly to its population and increased its per capita energy use.
