Thermal comfort and energy consumption of the ecological house – simulation analysis of DOMTRZON
Languages of publication
The paper describes the concept of DomTrzon which means ‘ecological house’. Measurements carried out in the existing building are presented. Based on this data the building envelope model assumptions are verified. A simplified model of a wood-lag accumulation stove (NunnaUuni) is proposed. The indoor thermal comfort and the building’s final energy consumption are investigated using TRNSYS simulation software. During periods when the building is occupied, most zones fulfill thermal comfort requirements. The final energy consumption of DomTrzon, for heating purposes, is equal to 66 kWh/m2/year.
