HUD Rehabilitation Energy Guidelines for Multi-Family Dwellings (September 1996, 150 p.)
This guidebook explains how property owners rehabilitating multi-family buildings can increase energy efficiency and reduce costs. It discusses the issues and factors that determine how much energy a multi-family building will consume, including heat flow, air leakage, insulation, and heating and cooling systems. The guide also includes the specific HUD Rehabilitation Energy Guidelines for Multi-Family Dwellings with general and location-specific recommendations for Energy conservation improvements. These guidelines are followed by examples of typical energy conservation measures in different climates. Each of these examples includes a Multi- Family Cost-Effectiveness Worksheet to show the overall simple payback. Appendix A provides a table that shows what climate zone applies to counties nationwide and the next two appendices provide a list of resources and a glossary. The remaining appendices contain sample surveys and worksheets to help owners with their rehabilitation projects. In addition, a worksheet diskette for Microsoft Excel (Version 5.0 or later) is
included with the guidebook.
