Thermal building simulation is a calculation method to determine the energy requirement for heating and cooling using real weather data and the required room temperatures.
The simulation takes into account all the physical parameters and weather data for each room/zone. The thermal comfort and required energy demand of the rooms can then be calculated early in the design phase.
Aim of Thermal Building Simulation:
- The thermal comfort and energy efficiency of a building and its services can be calculated early in the design Phase
- The simulation allows the safe and early planning of the energy efficient ventilation, heating and cooling of a building and its spaces
