Thermal Comfort Conditions and Energy Efficiency of Buildings ab 59 EURO Thermal Adaptation Building Code Variable Thermostat of air conditioner
This paper provides an overview of the Mexican electricity sector to frame the context in which energy efficiency national policies and strategies are developed. The paper then focuses on a specific energy efficiency strategy: residential air conditioner (AC) replacement programs. A spreadsheet model is presented as the core tool for analyzing three relevant air conditioner substitution programs in Mexico (FIPATERM ASI, FIDE PFAEE 2002-2006, and PNSEE). It then, provides a sensitivity analysis and scenario analysis for the PNSEE replacement program to provide insight on the main variables affecting the results of the program. The model estimates energy savings, CO2 emissions avoided and the economic impact to the user and to the utility. The FIPATERM and FIDE PFAEE 2002-2006 programs are estimated to result in 2,371 GWh saved and 1.4 million tons of CO2 avoided. Projected results from the PNSEE program are 4,710 GWh saved and 2.8 million tons of CO2 reduced by 2021. Improvements to the program rules, better information of AC stock, and improved reporting transparency, are some of the final recommendations for enhancing the benefits of air conditioner replacement programs.
DESCRIPTIONnnThe MK 2600 E local air conditioner from Einhell has a cooling capacity of 2600 W for providing fresh air in the home. This compact air conditioner combines power with plenty of dynamic setting options. An unobtrusive device, it can provide optimum air conditioning for up to 80 cubic meters. To enable it to be moved about easily the device has four castors. The large control panel with an illuminated LED indicator display allows the mode setting to be read off easily: selectable automatic adjustment, cooling only or just use as a fan. The selectable temperature setting ranges from a pleasantly cool +18°C to +32°C. For ease of use the local air conditioner from Einhell also has “ON delay” and “ON time” functions, with a selectable operating time of between one and twelve hours or the option of continuous operation. The device itself does not need to be disconnected from the mains power supply, since it has a practical On/Off switch. For convenient operation it has a remote control (supplied without batteries). In auto mode the air conditioner reaches approx. 65 decibels and it also has a sleep mode. The sleep function prevents undercooling by increasing the set room temperature by one degree in the first hour and two degrees within two hours. When the sleep function is switched off the room temperature decreases back to the set value. After the sleep function has been on for twelve hours the equipment switches off automatically. When the sleep function has been activated, the fan will automatically run at low speed. Although it is a high performance device, the local air conditioner is energy efficiency class A certified. The exhaust air hose, which is approx. 1.50 meters in length, has an adapter to enable it to be fastened to a window adapter or clamped in a window. Also included is a window gap cover for standard windows. The air intake filter is equipped with an activated carbon filter for cleaning the air before it is discharged from the device and back into the room. The MK 2600 E has an integrated condensate collector with a capacity of approx. 0.85 liters. In standard living rooms and bedrooms with humidity of up to 85 percent the moisture which is drawn in does not need emptying, because it is evaporated by the device and transfered outside through the exhaust air hose.
