AbstractDuring the fall and early winter, Mike Swinton, Research Manager of the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology (CCHT), and his team were busy calibrating and commissioning the centre's reference and test houses. This is for good reason because in order to obtain accurate and significant results when evaluating a new technology in the test house, it is critical to ensure that it is operating as closely as possible to the reference house before making any changes. This meant weeks of painstaking work, looking closely at thousands of details from sensors to data acquisition system operation, temperature distributions, gas and electrical consumption of specific appliances and components, as well as hundred of on/off events of the simulated occupancy system.
