Aspen Burlingame - NREL Field Test Report


ABSTRAC The City of Aspen and Shaw Builders are building affordable, attached multi-family homes at Burlingame Ranch in Aspen, Colorado, designed with durability and energy efficiency in mind. The homes are expected to reach approximately 51% source energy savings (1) compared the 2005 Building America Research Benchmark (2). Key features include air-tight spray foam insulation, low-E windows, heat recovery ventilators (HRVs), and baseboard heating provided by a high efficiency boiler with solar preheat. Building F-1 (163 Forge Rd) underwent detailed short-term performance testing by NREL in late March 2007, with follow-up testing on June 8, 2007. Long-term monitoring equipment was also installed in Building F-1, and the long-term test period will begin once the homebuyers move into the building. The purpose of the test was to evaluate the installed energy performance of the building envelope, HRVs, solar hot water system, centralized domestic hot water system with recirculation, and baseboard heating system. We will also evaluate elements of occupant comfort and system reliability as the long-term test progresses.
