Cold Regions of the Roof on the Building Energy Consumption Impact
This paper analyzes in cold regions the impact of the roof on the building load, And a typical building, the use of DEST software simulation of a typical building roof insulation in different circumstances changes in energy consumption. The results showed that: for top-level residential load, when the roof heat transfer coefficient decreased by 50%, relative to the original roof, heating season load can be reduced by nearly 20%, air-conditioning load can be decreased by 7% quarter or so.
