Abstract: The renovation of a building in terms of thermal insulation will improve the level of energy consumption in winter. To improve the summer comfort, we have simulated the introduction of a phase-change material (PCM) in both situations: removed or not removed building. The dynamic building simulation software CoDyBa has been adapted to consider these materials in the calculations. The parametric study is, once the surface material laid down considering the morphology of the premises, about the adjustment of certain characteristics of the material, such as thickness or melting temperature value.
