Environmental control systems are the components of a buildingthat keep occupants comfortable and help make the building work.Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings coversboth active controls, like air conditioners and heaters, as well aspassive controls like daylighting and natural ventilation. Becausethese systems comprise the entire energy use and costs of abuilding’s life, the book stresses the importance of sustainabilityconsiderations during the design process, by both architects andbuilders. Authored by two leading green design educators,MEEB provides the most current information on low-energyarchitecture, including topics like:
Context, comfort, and environmental resourcesIndoor air quality and thermal controlIllumination, acoustics, and electricityFire protection, signal systems, and transportation
Occupant comfort and building usability are the most criticalfactors in the success of a building design, and with environmentalconcerns mounting, it’s becoming more and more important toapproach projects from a sustainable perspective from the verybeginning. As the definitive guide to environmental control systemsfor over 75 years, Mechanical and Electrical Equipment forBuildings is a complete resource for students and professionalsalike.
