In this post, I’m including links to files that contain the historical electrical and temperature/humidity data for our house from February 1, 2015 through the date of this post, October 23, 2015. The data begins on February 1st because although I started recording in early December 2014, the heat pumps were not working correctly until late January. My intent is to offer this data to anyone who desires to use it for analytical purposes.
The electrical data, which was recorded by an eGuage energy monitor, contains daily numbers for total electrical use, the first floor heat pump, the second floor heat pump, the combined total of the two heat pumps, the dryer, the water heater, the ERV, the well pump, and the family room, which basically includes the lights and TV in that room.
The temperature and humidity data was recorded by Hobo data loggers that were placed on each floor (basement, first floor and second floor), and outside on the north side of the house under the porch roof.
I will update this data on February 1st of next year.
In early December (once I have a complete year of eGuage data), I will post the yearly total electrical usage for the appliances and mechanicals that are listed above. As I indicated, the heat pump data won’t be totally “accurate” (because they were “short cycling” until the end of January). But the information should still provide a reasonable indication of how efficiently the house is operating.
