Abstract

In this study, the heating and cooling energy consumptions for houses located in Algiers are determined using the degree day method during one year.Analytical results are validated by simulation with TRNSYS software. The hourly curves for energy consumption and outside temperature are presented during one month, one week and one day periods. Moreover, monthly results during a year are presented and analytical values are compared to simulated values. The degree day method proved to be applicable to the monthly and annual energy analysis for buildings. It was found that, Algerian climate with its long warm season compared to the cold season, consumes cooling energy twice as much as the heating energy. Energy consumption for heating reaches 670 kWh, as for cooling it is 1700 kWh.
