A chosen subset of all experiments is available for download. For each experiment, all data points in the list are included in the download files. Additional data points could become available on request:

  • air temperature from floor to ceiling in every room.
  • air temperature and velocity in stairs.
  • comfort metrics at head, chest and feet level of sitting occupants on every floor.
  • air outlets temperature (clothes dryer, kitchen hood, heat recovery ventilator).
  • additional locations for foundations walls and slab embedded temperature.
  • additional locations for soil temperature and humidity.

Experiments

Benchmarking

Compare houses thermal state and space heating energy room per room for identical steady state operating conditions. Solar gains are blocked, room doors are closed and baseboards thermostats heating setpoints are fixed at 21 °C.

Power shut down

Compare houses temperature decay during nightly shut down and rise during pickup room per room for identical transient operating conditions. Solar gains are blocked, room doors are closed and baseboards thermostats heating setpoints are fixed at 21 °C before and after shut down.

Thermostat space heating setpoint variations

Compare houses thermal state and heating energy room per room when thermostat setbacks are done in one house while temperature setpoints are kept constant at 21 °C for the other house. Solar gains are blocked and room doors are closed. In the first experiment, setbacks follow a typical schedule while in the other they are randomly selected which is suited for data driven model learning.
