Razvan Giusca, Raluca Giusca and V. Corobceanu

The aim of the study is to emphasize the actual demands of residential buildings` users and to explore new methods, yet less used, that could improve the buildings environmental comfort. The residential buildings, constructed by man in order to function as shelter where multiple processes of the social and material life takes place, are influenced by many factors that have to be taken under consideration when projecting, constructing, using and post-using them. All aspects emphasized in this study should be first considered in the processes of their interaction and interdependency and then to be systemically approached and analyzed. During the second half of the twentieth century, the urban population knew an incredible growth. This growth led to an exponential increase of the energy consumption and a more than alarming exceeding of noxious gases in the air and wastage. There was a time when the energy consumption was considered an indication of the quality of life. Therefore, from the point of view of the energy consumption, many differences appeared between the developed countries and the developing ones. At the same time a person living in one of the developed countries has energy consumption twenty-five times greater than one living in a poor country. A popular idea was that we can fight poverty with increased energy consumption. However, the facts showed a disturbing reality energy wastage.
