Energy retention

Energy retention

The amount of energy that can be retained, rather than dissipated, depends on several architectural factors. These include the size, shape, style, orientation, and construction of the building, as well as the insulation, heating/cooling, and envelope systems within the building. Nonarchitectural factors include the location, local climate, and users’ preferences.
