Use cases

Weather design data are used in many different steps and stages of the building design process and all of them depend on accuracy and specificity.

This is exactly what we bring to the table. 

Building simulation

Building simulation, by definition, strives for the most realistic prediction of the real behaviour 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 accurate results.

Without our data

Not using accurate weather design data specific to the location of the simulated building will result in a simulation that is only a generalized approximation of the reality.

The design decisions based on inaccurate data negatively influence demand for the building and result in revenue loss for the building owner.

Issues caused by approximate building simulation:

  • Inappropriate HVAC system size 
  • High operating costs
  • Increased energy consumption 
  • Thermal discomfort
  • Interior visual discomfort

With our data

If engineers and energy modelers know the exact weather conditions for a given location of the simulated building, the results will reflect reality,  creating the building performance conditions that achieve superior energy efficiency and indoor comfort.

Benefits of accurate building simulation:

  • Realistic and efficient design
  • Optimized operating costs 
  • Healthy interior environment 
  • Great indoor comfort 
  • Enabled productivity of building users

HVAC design and sizing

To design the most efficient HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) technologies for a new building, engineers have to know exactly what weather conditions the HVAC system is likely to face. This will determine the size of the system, technologies to be used, the required performance and much more.

Without our data

The main source of weather data for HVAC design are technical standards of individual countries. This data source usually offers only the most basic weather design data: extremely low temperatures and Heating DegreeDays. Furthermore, this data is created from old weather records, and generalized for regions of thousands of km2 in size.

To compensate for such inaccuracy in weather design data, the industry is overdesigning HVAC systems. Overdesigned HVAC is more expensive and less “low carbon”, minimizing ROI (return of investment) of the whole real-estate.

Issues caused by an overdesigned HVAC system:

  • High capital investment
  • Increased operating costs
  • Increased carbon footprint
  • Increased health risks
  • Lowered demand for rent/purchase

With our data

If HVAC engineers have access to exact and up-to-date weather design data for the given location of a building which complement weather design data from Technical Standards, they are able to design an efficient HVAC system of appropriate dimensions, reducing capital and operating costs, while also reducing carbon footprint and health risks.

Benefits of accurate building simulation:

  • Optimized capital investment
  • Increased competitiveness on market
  • Optimized operating costs
  • Reduced carbon footprint
  • Optimal health conditions

Building Envelope Design

Of all the underestimated factors that influence the way a building looks and functions from the outside, weather conditions are one of the most important ones. The orientation of the building, the technologies and materials used are all dependent on the location and its weather patterns.

Without our data

Designing the building envelope without location specific, precise and accurate weather design data will cause it to underperform under real weather conditions.

The inaccurate assumptions will limit the performance of the building envelope, negatively influencing indoor comfort, energy consumption and the future value of the whole real estate.

Issues caused by underperforming building envelope:

  • Interior overheating
  • Productivity loss
  • High energy consumption
  • Increased health risks
  • Revenue loss

With our data

If engineers and architects have access to exact weather design data for the given location of the building when designing its envelope, not only will the envelope be optimized to improve indoor comfort and the energy performance of the building, but it will open a range of new possibilities in the design process.

Benefits of a well-designed building envelope:

  • Increased productivity of users
  • Optimized operating costs
  • Increased demand for the building
  • Improved interior comfort
  • Improved health conditions

HVAC performance assessment

Every property manager wants to be sure the building performs in the most efficient way. It is not only about operating costs, but also about the comfort of its users and the reduction in the carbon footprint of the building.

Without our data

The purpose of HVAC is to compensate for the effects of weather conditions and create a stable indoor environment.

To have the capability to optimize an existing HVAC system and to detect its malfunction, it is necessary to compare the performance of such a system against historical weather conditions.

Issues caused by a malfunctioning HVAC system:

  • Faster deterioration
  • High energy consumption
  • Increased health risks
  • Poor indoor comfort
  • High revenue loss

With our data

To have the capability to optimize an existing HVAC system and to detect its malfunction, it is necessary to compare the performance of such system against historical weather conditions.

It will allow property managers to reduce operating costs, health risks, and productivity decrease associated with underperforming or malfunctioning HVAC systems.

Benefits of an optimized HVAC system:

  • Longer system life-time
  • Lower operating costs
  • Increased demand for the building
  • Improved user productivity
  • Improved health conditions
