  • Using a fairly typical mobile home design, it is shown that state-of-the-art mobile/modular housing and passive solar techniques can be used together. Computer simulations are used to analyze the concept. Size conditions at a mobile home park are considered. Glazing orientation, shading, and thermal storage are included in the analysis. (LEW)
  • The Residential Construction Demonstration Project (RCDP) was designed as an innovative conservation strategy for the Pacific Northwest. Its primary objective was to increase the capacity of the homebuilding industry to provide cost effective energy efficient housing to the region. Modular housing was included under RCDP as an innovative energy efficient construction technology. Modular builders were encouraged to construct homes that met the Super Good Cents requirements. Regional manufacturers were offered training, design and construction assistance in return for labor and material cost information. Nine homes were built under the RCDP. Digital submeters were installed in each home to monitor spacemore » and water heating energy use. Air infiltration tests were also included in the test data. The report concludes that the modular housing industry can meet the technical requirements for Super Good Cents construction. Design and production changes were within the industries capabilities as well.« less

  • This report presents statistics on energy - related housing characteristics from the 1978 Annual Housing Survey for the United States by inside and outside standard metropolitan statistical areas. Tables provide data on fuel, fuel cost, heating, air conditioning, insulation, and transportation characteristics. In addition, they present figures on the income of families and individuals by energy - related housing characteristics; the value of owner - occupied housing units and the gross rent of renter - occupied housing units by energy - related housing characteristics; the monthly and yearly costs paid for utilities; and the number of rooms per housing unitmore » by energy - related housing characteristics. Data on energy - related housing characteristics are also given for Black and Spanish heads of households. Appendices describe the geographic area classifications; provide definitions and explanations of the subjects covered in the report; and present information on sample design, estimation, and accuracy of the data. Area maps are included.« less
  • This report presents statistics on general housing characteristics for the United States by inside and outside standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSAs). Data are based on information from a sampling of housing units, collected by personal interview from October to December 1975. Part A provides data on general housing characteristics; part B on indicators of housing and neighborhood quality; part C on financial characteristics; part D on recent mover households; part E on urban and rural housing characteristics; and part F on financial characteristics cross-classified by indicators of housing and neighborhood quality. Appendix A describes the geographic area classifications and providesmore » definitions and explanations of the subjects covered in the report. Appendix B presents information on sample design, estimation, and accuracy of the data. (MCW)« less
