In this case study the Energy Rehabilitation of the “Guajiro” farm is exposed. To do this, energy simulations have been carried out using software (Energy +) before and after the construction process.
The rehabilitation of the home, with a design based on the needs of a person suffering from SQM and EHS syndromes (multiple chemical sensitivity and electromagnetic hypersensitivity), establishes its facilities in the control of indoor air quality and adequate ventilation of the home. the spaces.
Due to these conditions, the innovation of the active systems used (solar collector of air, stoves of biomass), as well as the anticipated passive systems, by means of the use of ecological, innocuous and odorless materials (cork, lime, cellulose) make the Dynamic The thermal simulation acquires a greater degree of complexity.
To test the accuracy of the simulations, a low-cost device was designed and built to measure temperature and humidity for long periods (more than a month). These custom construction sensors have been installed in different rooms to compare the actual temperature and humidity with the simulations. These data and the data obtained from the meteorological station closest to the building will help the authors to calibrate the model simulated in Energy +, in this way the architects and engineers can adopt optimized solutions for future interventions.
