Disregarding the excessive consumption of energy
to provide comfort in the residential units,
especially in cold and mountainous regions, is one
of the problems of residential complexes in Iran.
Although a lot of researches have been done in
this field, the inattention to this matter not only
causes energy crisis in the future but makes the
residential complexes as the biggest environment
polluter sources. On the other hand, the
traditional architects of Iran have provided the
residential areas, especially by considering the
hard conditions of cold regions, with comfort by
applying simple and available techniques and by
the minimum use of fossil fuels.
