ABSTRACT
The article explains the importance for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning designers to understand how building heating and cooling loads are affected by building-envelope design. It notes that one of the biggest challenges facing the building-design industry is the lack of practical building-science/physics education aimed at mechanical engineers and designers. It stresses that building envelopes must supply of a building's indoor-comfort needs as well as lighting during the day.
