Abstract
In this paper we present the results of a field study in which the indoor climate and the energy use for space heating in 6 passive houses in Belgium were monitored. The test group consisted of 4 houses with a massive shell construction and 2 timber frame houses. 2 houses were inhabited and 4 were used for promotional activities by the builders. The results are compared to the performance predicted by the PHPP method. We can conclude that the results are in good agreement with the predictions and that no significant difference in performance is found between the massive and timber frame constructions.
