dc.description.abstractThe energy consumption of a house can be affected simultaneously by many building design factors related to its main architectural features, building elements and materials. The relationship between the building design data and energy consumption data of houses can still be identified. This study focuses on the impact of building design factors on the extra winter energy consumption of houses. This information can be used to estimate the approximate saving in extra winter energy consumption, which would result from a changed design datum for future house development, and to identify the major design problems for energy efficiency. The quantitative relationships between building design data and extra winter energy consumption data are also valuable for developing passive design guides for housing energy efficiency. There is a focus on the effects of the passive features used in the architecture.en_NZ
