  20. 20. Weatherization Study Oak Ridge National Laboratory & Energy Center of Wisconsin• Challenge o Funded by a $5 billion federal assistance program, National Weatherization Assistance Program Evaluation o Determine if low-income homes in the Midwest, Northeast & South heated with propane & oil achieve comparable energy savings to those heated by natural gas. o How to accurately measure the differences between bulk fuel deliveries vs natural gas’s monthly bill. o Analyzing fuel deliveries, alone, can create skewed results. For example, one household may fill its oil tank to the top for the winter; another may fill it only partially and then use a wood-burning stove to supplement.• Solution o HOBO U10-003 Temp/RH loggers used at the main thermostat for space temperature over the study period which was used to improve the variable-base degree day analysis. o U10-003 also placed in spaces that used additional heating sources such as space heaters or wood stoves o Additional HOBOs where used to monitor the run-time of the heating systems. www.onsetcomp.com 20 6/4/2012
