AbstractThe Milbrandt low-energy house was built in 1980 in Saskatoon as part of a demonstration project. This paper discusses temperature distribution using point-source heaters as the sole heat source and relying on natural convection for distribution of heat. Summertime overheating in low-energy houses was also studied.
