Abstract

With increasing fuel prices, energy consumption is a huge factor in the cost of heating a house. The goal of the project “Energy efficiency of Worcester Friends Meetinghouse” was to reduce overall energy consumption of the entire building. The main focus of research included the heating system, thermostat, windows, and insulation. Another focus was to identify how the residents interacted with the building in regards to energy usage. Afterwards recommendations were made that can be implemented both in this building and others like it in order to improve energy efficiency.
