AbstractThis field study developed when a local builder decided to install electric heating in one of the houses in his subdivision. Two other houses of similar size were both being built at the same time but would be oil heated. This seemed to be an interesting area for study as all three houses were on the same street and had the same orientation. To supplement further the data collected, an electrically heated house in Sydney having the same orientation but slightly smaller in floor area was included as was a house in Sussex, N.B., that was also slightly smaller. The house in Sussex was built on a basement while the house in Sydney and the house in Dartmouth were both built on concrete slabs. The two oil heated houses in Dartmouth were built on crawl spaces.
