Inconsistencies between measurements and predictions are fairly evenly
distributed among the houses with different major retrofits. Four (67%) of the
six wall insulation houses showed measured savings that were inconsistent with
the predicted savings, indicating a problem with the audit's predictions of wall
insulation energy savings. Three (43%) of the seven houses with no major
retrofits showed savings that were inconsistent with the predictions. Houses
receiving a condensing furnace did no better; three (43%) of the seven showed
measured savings inconsistent with the predicted savings. The audit is
apparently not accurate in predicting energy savings of individual houses.
Here’s what’s next.
