Straight-line correlations for annual energy-consumption predictions?
A method is described that enables the annual heating requirement of a building to be calculated with computational speed, yet sufficient accuracy for normal design purposes. The effects of small changes in the building's design on the annual energy requirement can be determined with this method. It combines a response-factor simulation of the building's heat-transfer performance on certain selected days, which, with a straight-line equation fitting routine, enables a prediction to be made of the thermal loads for the other days of the year.
