Elimination of Interior Overheating of Multi Unit Residential Buildings using Passive Cooling Measures
Michal Bartko, National Research Council Canada
In Ontario, the number of days with summer outdoor air temperature above 30°C is rising. Also, the values of maximum daily temperatures are increasing. As a result, overheating of interiors in MURBs and room temperatures elevating above the thermal comfort levels is becoming a significant concern.

At the NRC, long-term hygrothermal behaviour of a couple of diffusely open assemblies with Passive House levels R-values was evaluated using the Field Test facility. Also energy models are being developed to evaluate thermal comfort and measures effective to eliminate the interior overheating problem in residential buildings, such as high R-value envelopes, shading, natural ventilation and occupant behaviour.

Modulating Ventilation Airflow to Meet the Needs of Passive House Designs
Hugh Crowther, Swegon
One of the 5 pillars of Passive House design is dedicated ventilation air through an ERV.  Being able to modulate the airflow to the different zones serviced by the ERV offers both opportunities and challenges to enhance the Passive House design.  This presentation will focus on variable ventilation airflow.
