Thermal dynamic analysis

The Home Quality Mark suggests that:

'Thermal comfort analysis tools can be subdivided into a number of methods of increasing complexity. The most complex of these and the one that provides greatest confidence in results is the full dynamic model. This type of model enables annual heating or cooling loads, overheating risks and control strategies to be assessed.'

For guidance on carrying out dynamic thermal modelling for homes, please refer to CIBSE TM59.
