AbstractThis paper describes the features and capabilities of a new research house that enables the comparison of various heating and ventilation strategies based on energy usage and indoor air quality. It also allows side-by-side rooms comparison in term of energy use and thermal comfort. The research house also has the capability for evaluating the in-situ hygrothermal performance of exterior wall assemblies that have different wall assembly techniques, insulation systems and air and vapour barrier approaches. This allows the investigation of interaction between wall moisture performance and indoor conditions produced by the various heating and ventilation systems.
