AbstractIn December 1977, an air-source heat pump was installed in one of the Mark XI energy conservation research houses in Ottawa, Canada. The system was purported to incorporate a number of features recognized as important in a northern climate heat pump. Monitoring of system performance began in December 1978 and was completed in May 1980. During this period, the heating energy supplied and consumed by the system under both normal operation (in response to the house load) and steady-state conditions (artificially induced load) was measured. Information on the frequency, duration and energy consumption of the defrost cycle was also recorded. This Research Note reports on the results of this study.
