AbstractThis article describes the characteristics and operation of a prototype DEC system and presents results of tests carried out on a system to assess its performance in term of humidity control and energy efficiency. The tests were carried out in the twin houses (research house and reference house) of the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology. The DEC system was installed in the basement of the research house, while the reference house contained a conventional air conditioning system (exterior unit) used for comparison (control) purposes.
