Energy Efficient Heating & Cooling

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Green building has become a hot topic for consumers and the media, but several disturbing trends have taken on mythological status. Get the lowdown from Chris Benedict and Henry Gifford on: glass to "connect" with the outdoors; geothermal heat pumps; green roofs; and solar panels.

For the last ten years Chris Benedict, Architect and Henry Gifford, Mechanical Sytem Designer have been working as a team designing and monitoring the construction of buildings that are extremely energy efficient, healthy and durable. Their current new construction jobs use 15% of the energy for heat and hot water of typical apartment buildings in New York City and 50% of the electricity. All of their projects are built for the same cost as typical construction.

They will show how one of their current projects would have turned out if now-trendy items had been used to make the building "green". They will show the number crunching necessary to see how these items would have added to the construction cost with only questionable benefits.
