Paper Abstract

The research program on energy-economy buildings and building parts (ETRR) has been launched by the Department of Energy in the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Finland. It is a large nationwide research program, which includes both renovation and new building. The project "Renovation concepts for private houses" is a part of the research area of renovation, in which the aim is to find alternati­ ves for renovation procedures for selected private houses representing various decades. These procedures should lead into decrease of 25 - 75 percent of the present consumption of heating energy. The renovation concepts include both structural renovation procedures and repairs of HVAC-systems. The selected houses in the project were submitted into energy performance monitoring with air tightness measurements and thermal imaging.
