Abstract: Our presentation for the 2014 ASHRAE/IBPSA conference, “Simulating Air Leakage in a Whole Building Energy Model – An Existing Building Study”, summarized our effort to model a building before and after a window replacement project. We obtained very good model correlation to actual heating loads using data from whole building air infiltration tests integrated with an EnergyPlus Airflow Network object. The following reviews our process and results.
