Retrofits of Residential Buildings to Slow the Climate Change

Starting with the definition of net zero emission as the key to understanding climate change, this brief overview article demonstrates to the reader that the only way to accelerate the green revolution is through a broad public-private education and demonstration programme about the need to reinvest in the next generation of retrofitted buildings, rather than a focus on green materials. To this goal, we must reconsider how we modify residential buildings.

The necessity to change ventilation and indoor air flow patterns to constrain SAR-coV dispersion in habitable space has reinforced a distinct pattern of thinking established by the movement toward holistic design with integrated design process (IDP). As a result, integrated control of heating, cooling, air movement, and humidity leads to a fusion of new technology with building automation, opening up new frontiers for building environmental quality management. This post focuses on new building rehabilitation since it is the single most essential and straightforward strategy to cut carbon emissions.
