AbstractBuilding on the development of a correlation method to determine seasonal residential cooling energy in Canada, we developed a similar correlation method to predict delivered sensible cooling energy on a monthly basis. Further, we investigated the effect of thermal mass and manual venting on the sensible cooling energy requirement. The predictions using the monthly method were compared to those from an hourly simulation model and found to be satisfactory given the method's simplicity. Mean differences, over all climates and building parameters considered, were 6.5 percent in the light mass, no manual venting case. An example calculation using the method is presented, and the method's limitations are discussed.
