In the winter time, homes get cold as heat leaks out of the house. Less efficient homes will leak heat and lose temperature quickly. This research project will gather real world data from homes to investigate algorithms to measure the “leakiness” of homes. Data collected will help develop ways to characterize and improve energy efficiency. This study is being conducted by Professors Howard Chong and Al George of Cornell University. Research funding is generously provided by the Atkinson Center for Sustainable Future.
