Passive House Performance Monitoring

Overview

LOCATION: Langley, BC

COMPLETED: year

SENSOR CLASS: Investigative Monitoring INDUSTRY: Residential

Details:

The idea of Passive House is to create a world-leading standard in energy efficiency. In Canada, annual heating/cooling energy represents 75%–85% of the total life-cycle environmental impact of a building. It is designed to give the knowledge to produce extremely energy efficient, and therefore sustainable, buildings, it also makes it cost effective for all.

These included sensors are used to provide further understanding of the building science and investigation through the project.

Included Sensors:

  • Wall Moisture Content

  • Temperature

  • RH

  • Heatflux
