Title: Energy management for housing managers. Participant's workbook

Abstract

The workbook on energy management for housing managers is 1 of 18 developed by HUD to upgrade management skills in HUD-related housing. Many of the principles presented should also be viewed by students and instructors as applicable to multifamily housing management practices in the private sector. The workbook is designed to prepare housing managers to conserve the energy consumed in a housing development and to equip them to encourage residents' compliance with easy and commonsense methods of home conservation of fuels, water, and electricity. It discusses energy management principles concerning drapes; windows and doors; attics, ceilings, and walls; refrigerators; ranges; washers and dryers; dishwashers; disposals and compactors; televisions and radios; and heating and cooling. Among the many nontechnical measures discussed are opening drapes to use the sun for heat when heat is desirable and keeping them closed at other times; running appliances and thermostats on the lowest settings possible to get the job done; and avoiding loss of heat or cold by restricting opening of doors to the house, refrigerator, and oven when in operation. As such the workbook emphasizes practical knowledge that can be applied to real problems and situations. It contains a posttest and a skill test. Onemore » bibliographic citation is provided.« less
