A preliminary evaluation of the performance of super-insulated demonstration houses built in Keewatin, Northwest Territories: NH15-593/1982E-PDF

“The Northwest Territories Housing Corporation (NWTHC) has recently designed and built demonstration housing units in seven Keewatin communities. The underlying idea was to design, in conjunction with the Keewatin Federation and local associations, a house which would be suited to Northern ways of life, be highly energy efficient, and would enjoy a measure of autonomy from community services in case of a temporary power failure. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation financed the construction of these units under its Public Housing Program, and CMHC was asked by the NWTHC to evaluate the performance of the features included in the units. A grant was obtained from the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources and a consultant was contracted to carry out a program of monitoring. Although the work is still going on, some preliminary results are available"--Background, p. [3].
