CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION EQuilibrium Update EQuilibrium TM Housing Status of the Initiative EQuilibrium™ Housing InSights EQuilibrium™ Communities Status of the Initiative 2010 Canadian Housing Observer EQ Performance Indicators The Laebon CHESS Project Red Deer, AB Avalon Discovery 3 Red Deer, AB

CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION EQuilibrium™ Housing InSight Completed Titles Avalon Discovery 3 Passive Solar Design Now House™ Exterior Envelope Retrofit Riverdale NetZero Deep Wall System Active Solar Thermal System Passive Solar Design
CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION EQuilibrium™ Housing InSight Completed Titles - New Avalon Discovery 3 Active Solar Heating Slab-on-grade Foundation and Finished Attic Space Double Structural Insulated Panel Walls Integrated Photovoltaic System ÉcoTerra™ Passive Solar Design
The EQ houses are performing well Householders use more electricity than predicted by developers and energy modellers PV output meets predictions in summer but is less than predicted in winter Many assumptions in prediction process Shading, snow effects are likely culprits Monitoring Results – General Trends
From January 2010 through mid-July: Avalon with an 8.2 kW system produced about 5600 kWh CHESS with a 6.7 kW system produced about 6000 kWh Predictive programs could not deal with the subtleties of shading Real vs predicted PV

CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION Ongoing Renovation Research Basement Wall Insulation Retrofit Monitoring
CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION Ongoing Renovation Research Performance Analysis of Residential Hot Water Efficiency Devices – Instantaneous DHW Savings Payback Period for Green Building Features in Single Family Detached Dwellings Sustainable Building Envelope Retrofits for Existing Homes Design and Specification for NZ Building Envelope Retrofits Green Renovators Guide
CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION Ongoing Renovation Research Recently Completed: Cold Climate Radon Mitigation – External Research Program This research project investigated how radon mitigators working cold climates mitigate radon. Results indicate that while an outside fan with vertical ducting works adequately in temperate parts of North America, the colder parts may require additional measures to avoid icing, such as vent insulation or locating the vent in a heated location.
