Fuel Consumption and Environmental Effect of Heating System Selection


[Izmir Institute of Technology, Turkey]

In this study, the amount of energy that is required, annual resource consumption and environmental impact were compared using four different energy sources as coal, fuel oil, gas and geothermal energy, for reference specified building, according to the city in three different heating zones in Turkey. Thermodynamic relations were used to specify the heat changes for any system. Design of the building and local climate were effective for the calculation of heating energy demand. The different energy requirements depending on the local conditions require the use of appropriate methods in building design. Therefore, Degree Day, Annual fuel consumption and CO2 emission approaches were used in order to make the mentioned comparisons.
