Abstract

This report summarizes the evaluation of existing technologies for meeting residential ventilation requirements for potential changes to California Building Energy Efficiency Standards (commonly referred to as Title 24). This evaluation was performed by simulating a range of ventilation systems in California climates. The first part of this work was to develop a simulation plan. This plan was reviewed by commission staff and the project PAC. This report summarizes the simulation plan as well as the simulation results. More detailed information including summary spreadsheets and files of hourly performance for each simulation will be made available to the commission separate from this report.
