This project conducted monitoring at a 6-unit Passive House townhome complex in British Columbia in order to assess actual building performance. Energy consumption, indoor air quality, surface temperatures, and heat recovery ventilator (HRV) efficiency indicators were monitored to allow for comparison against various performance metrics required by the Passive House Institute (PHI) standard. As all six townhome suites were constructed to be nearly identical, this project also provides a unique opportunity to examine occupant behavior and its effect on energy consumption in a Passive House context.
This final report summarizes an analysis of the collected data between March 2018 and end of February 2020.
