Abstract:The speakers presented on Building America research that focuses on balancing needs of low load, high-performance homes with variable capacity comfort systems and smart ventilation systems. It can be challenging to maintain comfort, moisture control, and indoor air quality in high-performance, low-load homes while also striving to achieve low space conditioning energy costs. Presenters discussed research results from evaluating variable capacity comfort systems and smart ventilation systems that can help practitioners and industry partners balance these objectives. Space conditioning system and ventilation system manufacturers will benefit from insights provided into potential equipment refinements and innovations that add value to the growing low load home market sector. An emphasis was placed on needs of the hot humid climate.
