mponents and tenants

from 9-18 %. Similar to the weekday activity simulation, the thermal comfort is only
considered ok during the evening. It is observed that the air temperature is not increasing
enough during the day, which could cause comfort dissatisfaction. This explores a difference
in comfort level for the two studied houses, which means that comparative energy analyses on
this basis are not justified, due to the fact that the tenants' thermal sensation in the buildings
are different. Hence, energy analyses should be done on equal thermal comfort bases as well,
meaning the same operative temperature (see Chapter 3.6.2) In order to apply the same
operative temperature, the air temperature in the conventional will need to be higher than in
the passive house, due to the less insulated building envelope.

The purposes with these simulations are to investigate the impact that co
have on the amount of energy needed for space heating in the houses. Also, to calculate how
the need for space heating differs between the two types of houses and how this is correlated
to the outdoor temperature.
