Unformatted text preview: 10 - 1.11 = 8.89 M MBTUs/yr Savings in energy cost per year = 8.89 x 10 = $88.9 Payback period = 20 / 88.9 = 0.22 yrs Spacer materials used in a window reduce Correct A ) conduc*on losses Spaces material usually has a high R- value and is used to reduce conduc*on losses in a window The heat loss through a window (U- value = 0.5) is 10 MMBTU/year. Calculate the payback period (in years) if Argon is filled in the window to increase the effec*ve U- value of the window to 0.1429. Assume hea*ng price to be $10/MMBTU and the cost for filling Argon is $20. Correct D ) 0.28 years R- value of new window = 1/0.1429 = 7 Heat lost through new window per year = (10 x 2) / 7 = 2.84 MMBTUs/yr Reduc*on in heat lost per year = 10 - 2.84 = 7.16 M MBTUs/yr Savings in energy cost per year = 7.16 x 10 = $71.6 Payback period = 20 / 71.6 = 0.28 yrs...
