Abstract

Project has been running since March 2011. • Three dwellings monitored include the first Scottish Passive house, a Low Energy House (no MVHR), and a 1950s dwelling; located in Dunoon, Scotland. • Monitoring includes: energy use; internal and external conditions (Temperatures, RH and CO2 levels inside and temperature and solar radiation outside); and systems performance (including solar hot water). • Post occupancy evaluation (POE) carried out through inspection and questionnaire. • Energy used, CO2 and relative humidity levels compared. • Operation of the different ventilation schemes highlighted. • Costs and electricity tariffs highlighted. • Learnings identified include ventilation, heat pump, solar and auxiliary hot water services. • Improvements to current processes are suggested. • POE and monitoring are essential feedback for the building design and construction process.
