Having the value of the balance point temperature after thermal rehabilitation the number of days in thenew shorter heating season is:
t t K K t t t t N N
(6)The variation of balance point temperature and number of days in the new heating season in function of therehabilitation level when the original value of balance point temperature is 12
C is presented in Figure 2.

FIG. 2: Number of days in a heating season and balance point temperature.
The heating energy demand for a building could be written as:
xt t K E
(7)So that using the (5)-(7) equations the ratio of the energy consumption before and after rehabilitation couldbe determined as follows:
N t t N t t N N K K E E
