VELUX Energy and Indoor Climate Visualizer is used to evaluate the performance of single-family houses with respect to energy, ventilation and indoor climate. It is intuitive to use and can be used by anyone with moderate to basic knowledge of building technology. It is based on a recognised and validated simulation engine to provide accurate and reliable results.
VELUX Energy and Indoor Climate Visualizer focuses on windows and solar shading and their effects on the energy consumption for heating, ventilation, cooling and lighting. It has flexible control options for natural ventilation and solar shading.
Besides energy demands, other output includes ventilation rates for the building and each individual window as well as the air temperature in the building through the year. Based on the actual daylight availability in the house, the electricity consumption for lighting is calculated.
VELUX Energy and Indoor Climate Visualizer works with specific orientation and location of the building and includes a library of locations from large parts of the world. The library of constructions ranges from poorly insulated and leaking buildings to well insulated and airtight buildings, so the tool can be used for new-built projects as well as renovation of existing houses – and based on predefined building geometries representing typical house types.
Simulation results are summarized in a printable report containing key performance figures and written guidelines. Hereby, it will be simple and fast to compare results between identical building geometries and different choices of windows, panes, solar shading, etc.
