House energy need difference between months

This form allows you to view how big percentage of the house energy need that the different months of the year normally consumes. The percentage needed is to a large degree depending on the outside temperature. However, a number of other factors are affecting the results. For example:

  • The warm water consumption, if included in the calculations, is normally a little more even over the months and thus reduces the difference.
  • The sun, when shining, reduces the heat need to a higher degree than can be seen from the temperature alone
  • The house itself stores the heat, so if there are more warm days than colder days, the heat needed by the house is reduced through that stored energy

These calculations do not take the above factors intor account. They are based on the heat consumption for heating, based on the outside temperatures at the location you specify. If you want to do more specific calculations for your house, there is a number of pages available.

Select temperature location

The below input data is to define the outside temperatures to be used, based on which the heatring need is calculated.

Define max outside temperature needing heating

The below input data is to define the highest outside temperature at which heating is still needed for the house (heating a house is partly done by being in it, and by using household appliances in the house). Thus, normally a house having a temperature of around 20-21 degrees does not need any specific heating above around 16-18 degrees.

  • Then press the button below, which converts the given house data plus the selected temperature location to a month distribution of heating need for the house.

Heat need distribution over the months

Based on the values given above, when the button above is pressed, the below diagram is updated, showing how big percentage of the total heating that is normally taken by each month.
