AbstractThis paper provides an experimental evaluation of the efficiency of an Energy Recovery ventilator ( ERV) for a range of summer temperatures in Ottawa including humid summer days. The assessment was achieved using the twin houses, and their ?side-by side testing' to measure the real impact of the installation of the ERV in Canadian houses. ?Side-by side testing' consists of incorporating into the test house an innovative energy saving component, in this case the ERV. Both houses were then operated identically and monitored. Changes in house performances due to the innovation were observed through comparison of test house performance to the reference house performance, for a range of weather conditions. The two houses operation items compared include: airflow, energy consumption, house air temperature and humidity.
