The ere 132 eco home is a research lab


More than 130 measurement points have been installed at different locations. Divided into seven groups, these measurements are presented in table form to facilitate an overall view.

To learn more about the monitoring project, for example, the exact location of the temperature sensors, visit the ERE 132 Eco Home or download the Monitoring report completed in June 2015 on the performance of a sustainable residential building with double-stud wood framed wall construction..


Day 1 of the data acquisition is June 4, 2015. Considering that it will take at least a year of data collection to undertake an analysis, the results will be available in different ways:

  • In real time, in the ERE 132 Eco Home - You will have the opportunity to select a group of measures among the seven possibilities and to see, in real time, on a TV screen, the statistical values read by the sensors.
  • From June 2016 - On this page, following the data analysis, the answers to the questions listed previously will be revealed.
  • Electronically, upon request - If you want to analyze for yourself certain data, simply make a request to a contact person, thanks to the partnership with the Cegep of Rimouski.


CEGEP RimouskiThe monitoring project is designed to be flexible and serve the needs of the community. That is why we have resource people who remain available to respond to different needs. Are you curious to learn more about the equipment used or the methodology employed? Would you like us to analyze certain measures for you? At your convenience, would you like to submit a question to us that we will publish on our web page? Do you simply want to engage in a discussion with the designers of the monitoring system?
