HRV-Systems in the Energy-Signature method
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of SB13 Dubai Conference: Advancing the Green Agenda, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
The energy use for the residential sector in Sweden is about 40% of Sweden’s total energy use. European Union has specified that al new buildings by the year 2020 shall be close to zero energy buildings. But what happens in a house when heating comes from non-measurable or hard to measure sources such as heat from household electricity, people, sun or HRV-systems. All these sources are becoming more and more important in standard houses of today and especially in low energy houses of today and the future. This paper deals with a Data-driven technique based on an Energy-Signature model to investigate how single family houses with HRV systems installed preforms by comparing the Effective U-value based on the heat loss factor and envelope area for each house. The results show that no distinct difference between the HRV and non-HRV houses can be seen in this study by using an energy signature method as presented in this paper which is surprising.
