Documentation of super-insulated housing in Yukon: NH18-22/117-1E-PDF

"Since 2007, Yukon Housing Corporation (YHC) has built 224 super-insulated public housing units, with approximately 300 market units built across the territory by the private sector. However, there has been little to no follow-up on the performance of these houses. Anecdotal information suggested that these houses were neither difficult nor expensive to build but have far superior energy efficiency and comfort compared to standard construction. This study was undertaken to document the design and construction of super-insulated (SuperGreen™1) housing within Yukon and provide information on their performance, their return on investment (where possible) and the lessons learned by builder participants"--Introd., p. [1].
