Heat Gain/ Heat Loss Calculations

Heat gain and heat loss calculations are used to determine the cost-effectiveness of the recommended energy saving improvements for a given house. The calculations show how much heat is lost or gained over a twenty-four hour period. This information can be used to determine whether the improvements make economic sense. In this lesson, auditors become familiar with how these calculations are made and how to use them to determine the cost effectiveness of potential improvements. Sample equations for the walls of a house are included.

After finishing the lesson, auditors will be able to:

  • Explain the purpose of heat loss and heat gain calculations and discuss why these calculations are important
  • Identify the equations and the mathematics used to make heat gain and heat loss calculations
  • Understand how heat gain and heat loss calculations are used to determine the cost-effectiveness of energy-savings improvements for a given house
