Chapter 1 Basics of Heat Transfer1-19 An electrically heated house maintained at 22°C experiences infiltration losses at a rate of 0.7 ACH. The amount of energy loss from the house due to infiltration per day and its cost are to be determined.Assumptions 1 Air as an ideal gas with a constant specific heats at room temperature. 2The volume occupied by the furniture and other belongings is negligible. 3The house is maintained at a constant temperature and pressure at all times. 4 The infiltrating air exfiltrates at the indoors temperature of 22°C. Properties The specific heat of air at room temperature is = 1.007 kJ/kg.°C (Table A-15).
