House models, generated as plans and specifications replicas, are given for some well-known building energy software tools. Benchmarking is left to the users as it will surely lead to improvements. Feel free to share them with us through the contact section.

Energy Plus

Local weather epw file is available. Rooms define the zones. Heating setpoints are fixed at 21 ºC. Typical air infiltrations are defined. Objects to account for open air connections are included. Possible refinements include, but are not limited to: DN and DH irradiance computation, rezoning, adjusting material properties, infiltrations or open air connections objects, improve foundation walls and slab heat transfer, explore simulation settings.
