AbstractDuring 1976/77 the NRC funded the design and installation of 14 active solar space-heating systems in single-family homes as part of its solar demonstration program. Both air- and liquid-based systems were installed in new and existing dwellings. A description of the houses and systems is provided in this Note as well as a limited performance summary of six of the houses. Problems associated with design, construction and operation of the project houses are also discussed.
