Abstract: In this paper, various clothing level and metabolic rates have been simulated and analyzed to study the impact on the thermal comfort and energy efficiency of the detached house in cold climate region Finland. The main objective of this paper is to show how much minimum and maximum indoor air temperature can be achieved while fulfilling the target values for thermal conditions selected and defined according to SFS-EN—15251. PMV and PPD have been calculated in order to show the satisfaction crieterias.
