Criterion 5 : Thermal efficiency of building envelope
- There are a specific set of external wall materials in the drop down menu of the calculator. What should be done if the project is using different materials / different combination?
- Can you please add fly ash bricks in material thermal efficiency (Criterion 5) and embodied energy (criterion 11) calculators?
- There is a mention of threshold values in Criterion 05 of SVAGRIHA. Do these values consider sum of heat gain from Building Envelope, LPD, EPD, Occupancy (or) this value is only for heat gain from Building Envelope.
- While considering ‘Sq.ft/TR’, which area, ‘conditioned space’ or ‘total space’, should be considered for calculation?
- If the developer is not providing any kind of air-conditioners, fans & geysers, then how can we achieve points ?
- Can you please suggest appropriate Air Conditioners which can help in achieving points in Criterion 6 (Use of Energy Efficient appliance) of SVAGRIHA?
