Energy Modelling in Traditional Scottish Houses

This paper summarises the assessment of a traditional, two storey sandstone villla in rural Scotland in terms of its energy performance and internal comfort conditions. Dynamic thermal modelling was used rather than steady state calculation methods in an attempt to record results from an alternative software testing technique. The dynamic thermal modelling enables factors such as thermal mass and retrofitted draught poofing to be taken into account which are generally neglected in steady state simulations.
