AbstractDuring the winter heating season of 2002-2003 and the summer cooling season of 2003, the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology (CCHT) ran a series of trials to determine actual energy savings from thermostat setting in one of its R-2000 test houses. The unique nature of the CCHT Twin House Facility allowed not only the examination of energy savings, but also whole house performance. During the thermostat experiments, important factors that affect occupant comfort were explored, including: air temperature recovery time from set-back and set-up, house surface temperatures during winter set-back, solar effects, and summer house humidity: giving a broad picture of the effects of thermostat set-back/set-up in a typical R-2000 home.
