Abstract
The accurate assessment of buildings to assess their performance across a range of parameters is an essential part of understanding both new and retrofit buildings. The growing understanding of the performance gap in terms of its assessment and characterisation relies on effective methods of analysis. Here, we evaluate an experimental whole house method, known as QUB. As with many whole building approaches the method establishes heat loss through transmission and ventilation losses.<br/><br/>\ud This study compares QUB against an alternative, established, whole house test known as coheating. It was applied in a whole house test facility under controlled conditio...
