Abstract: This paper investigates the implication of alternative design and retrofit options for thermal performance (heating and cooling demand reduction potential) of existing residential buildings in Tehran, Iran. For the investigation three typical existing residential buildings were selected. Subsequently, parametric simulation were conducted to explore the impact of various thermal retrofit measures on the heating and cooling demand as well as the overheating tendencies in the selected buildings.
