Energy audit of the residential building
One of the ways to reduce the energy consumption from conventional sources is the introduction of an energy audit, which aims to inform the owner / user of a building about its energy consumption and possible ways of its reduction. For this purpose, the coefficients EK (annual demand for final energy) and EP (the amount of non-renewable primary energy to satisfy the energy needs of the building) were introduced. Their maximum values are deter-mined in accordance with the regulations of the Minister of Infrastructure for each type of building covered by the energy audit obligation. Audit is an expertise designed to gain knowledge about energy consumption in a given building, a set of buildings, a system or an installation. It is to provide information on how to save an energy and their results. The following article presents the purpose and methodology of performing the energy audit for residential buildings.
