Abstract

Most older buildings in New England are energy inefficient and lack the latest energy-saving innovations. WPI’s Sanford Riley Hall certainly is one such building. A computer modeling software was used to analyze a variety of new technologies that could be used to retro-fit buildings like Sanford Riley Hall in order to make them more energy efficient. This project examined non-intrusive modifications such as aerogel windows and cool roof technology along with industry alternatives. Our results showed that significant savings can be made by replacing the current windows with Triple paned argon windows.
