Use cases

Climate data is used in many different stages of the building design process, and all of them depend on the accuracy and reliability of input data.

This is exactly what we bring to the table.

Building simulations

Building simulation, by definition, strives for the most realistic prediction of the real behavior of a building prior to its construction. It is crucial to set the input conditions as close to reality as possible to get the most realistic results.

Available data

The simulation outcome is only as good as the data that goes in. Running performance simulations using outdated weather files from weather stations 10s of km away from the project site will produce only a generalized approximation of the reality.

Approximate simulation results:

  • Sub-optimal energy performance
  • Increased safety risk (e.g. fire, smoke)
  • Poor daylighting

MeteoInsight data

The MeteoInsight weather files are created from the latest hourly weather records for your specific project site. Employing MeteoInsight weather files, your building simulation will yield more realistic results that mimic the true behavior of the building. 

Superior simulation results:

  • Premium energy certifcation
  • Healthy and productive spaces 
  • Minimized capital and operating costs

METEOINSIGHT

Running a building simulation is a significant investment during the design process. Don’t devalue its results by running it with inaccurate input data.

HVAC design and sizing

Accurate and reliable climate data is a key input for HVAC design. Climatic design conditions determine the size of the system, selection of technologies, the required performance, and much more.

Available data

Normative climatic design conditions for HVAC sizing and load calculations contain the most basic climate statistics, created from old weather records generalized for regions of thousands of km2 in size. Insufficient data leads to the overdesign of HVAC.

Overdesigned HVAC system:

  • Increased HVAC costs
  • Large carbon footprint
  • Increased tenant health risks

MeteoInsight data

Complementary MeteoInsight climate statistics allow you to design optimally sized HVAC systems without compromising on the government's technical standards. These statistics are created from up-to-date weather records for your specific project site.

Optimized HVAC sizing:

  • Minimized capital and operating costs
  • Low environmental impact
  • Increased property value 

METEOINSIGHT

Enhance your HVAC design to not only meet compliance standards but to optimize its performance and cost.

Building Envelope Design

Accurate and reliable climate data is an integral part of the building envelope design. Climatic design conditions determine the orientation and the shape of the building, as well as the thermal, daylighting, and acoustic performance of its envelope.

Available data

Normative climatic design conditions for envelope design contain the most basic climate statistics, created from old weather records generalized for regions of thousands of km2 in size. Insufficient data leads to an underperforming building envelope.

Underperforming building envelope:

  • Thermal discomfort for tenants
  • Productivity loss
  • Property depreciation

MeteoInsight data

Complementary MeteoInsight climate statistics allow you to design optimally performing building envelope without compromising on the government's technical standards. These statistics are created from up-to-date weather records for your specific project site.

Improved envelope performance:

  • Healthy and productive spaces 
  • Superior energy performance
  • Improved property demand

METEOINSIGHT

Explore unique new design options and design the best performing envelope in compliance with technical standards.

HVAC performance assessment

The purpose of HVAC is to create a stable indoor environment by compensating for outside weather conditions. Comparing the latest weather records against measurements of internal HVAC sensors is critical to detect performance issues early on.

No data

If property managers don’t have easy access to the latest weather records of the location of their property, early detection, and fix of malfunctioning HVAC systems become increasingly difficult and cost-intensive processes.

Late detection of malfunctioning HVAC:

  • Frequent HVAC maintenance
  • Discomfort and health risk for tenants
  • Property depreciation

MeteoInsight data

The MeteoInsight hourly weather records are created from the latest weather data for your specific property site. Employing MeteoInsight weather records, you can prevent future HVAC malfunctions and identify the ongoing ones way in advance.

Early detection of HVAC malfunctioning:

  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Healthy and productive spaces
  • Increased property value 

METEOINSIGHT

Identify HVAC malfunctions way in advance by comparing your HVAC performance against reliable weather records of the exact location of your property.
