Central heating settings in low energy social housing in the United Kingdom
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents essential empirical data on heating setpoint temperatures and durations from UK social housing built to low energy standards. The data was derived from living room air temperature measurements. There were single, double and multiple heating periods per day in the dwellings with mean setpoint temperatures of 20.9°C and 21.0°C on weekdays and weekends respectively. The weekday mean heating duration was 8.4 hours and for weekends, it was 9.1 hours. The results could be used to better inform the assumptions of space heating behaviour used in energy models in order to more accurately predict the space heating energy demands of dwellings.
