This report details development paths for advanced versions of ASHRAE Standard 152, Method of Test for Determining the Design and Seasonal Efficiencies of Residential Thermal Distribution Efficiency. During the course of conversations within the ASHRAE committee responsible for developing the standard (SPC152P9, three areas of development for Standard 152 were proposed: 1) extend the scope of the standard to include thermal comfort variables; 2) extend the scope of the standard to include small
