ENERGY EFFICIENT HOUSE
V. Ryan © 2006 - 2009
Study the diagram below. It shows a typical interior of a standard house. However, this has been altered to be as energy efficient as possible and environmentally friendly. Consequently, a heat exchanger has been added to the loft, powered by solar panels and many other gadgets have been added. The aim is to save energy and to protect the environment.
1. What could be added to make the interior of the house even more energy efficient and environmentally friendly ?
2. Describe what you could do to make the interior of the house more energy efficient. For example, turning off lights when they are not need.
3. Most of the houses in the UK are
quite old. They tend to use energy in a very inefficient manner. Old
houses tend to be drafty, they lose their heat quickly especially in
winter. Also, people tend to be very wasteful - they leave the lights on
when they leave a room, doors tend to be left open even when the heating
is on, the TV is left on even when people are not watching it
