Earth Tube Ventilation Systems — Applicability in the Canadian Climate
This Research Highlight summarizes the results of a review of available research on residential earth-to-air heat exchangers (EAHX, also called earth tubes) and their applicability to the Canadian climate. The findings of this research has shown that while many earthtubes have been installed in residential (and commercial) buildings, there is currently little information available that characterizes the performance of residential EAHX in most of Canada's climatic conditions with respect to potential energy savings and impact on indoor air quality.
