Abstract

The effectiveness of energy utilization is calculated using mathematical simulation of various garden apartment utility systems. Comparisons of six conventional energy systems and five total energy systems applied to a hypothetical apartment project show that the total energy system described as System J in Table 1 is the most efficient system. This total energy system consumes approximately 15 percent less fuel than the most efficient conventional energy system. This represents an annual savings of $84 per dewelling unit or $54180 for a 640 unit apartment complex, or a savings of 57 percent.
