Abstract: The measured weather data used in our study shows clear correlations between dry bulb temperature, wind speed and solar radiation; e.g. when outdoor temperatures sink below -3°C, the wind speed drops but the solar radiation tends to increase. Commercially available weather data often contain uncorrelated wind speeds, however, which can lead to an overestimation of the infiltration losses and the resulting heat demand at (very) low temperatures.
