Abstract

The Japanese residential energy saving standard for new house generation was modified in 1999, in which “specification standards” were provided as decision criteria for designers. However, there are several methods for lowering the energy consumption of houses which are not evaluated by these standards. In this paper, we predict the change in heating and cooling load by difference of location, planning and specification of a model house, which are not evaluated by “the specification standards”. We then examine the effectiveness of passive energy methods which are also not considered by the standard.
