Abstract
In a case study, comprising 1177 residential apartments with 3248 rooms, temperature registrations every 15th minute in all living-rooms and bedrooms, during one year, in the system for individual metering and billing of space heating costs, were analyzed. The apartments were divided into two

categories, apartment blocks from 1960th and row houses from about 1990. Apartments mean temperatures and standard deviations as a function of apartment size and category was compared. Corresponding was done on room level divided on apartment size for the two building categories.

Finally, temperatures in bedrooms were compared to those in living-rooms for two objects from each category; presented in duration charts based on all... (More)
In a case study, comprising 1177 residential apartments with 3248 rooms, temperature registrations every 15th minute in all living-rooms and bedrooms, during one year, in the system for individual metering and billing of space heating costs, were analyzed. The apartments were divided into two

categories, apartment blocks from 1960th and row houses from about 1990. Apartments mean temperatures and standard deviations as a function of apartment size and category was compared. Corresponding was done on room level divided on apartment size for the two building categories.

Finally, temperatures in bedrooms were compared to those in living-rooms for two objects from each category; presented in duration charts based on all single 15th minute values. The same pattern between different apartment sizes is kept for all month, though with a seasonal variation. The livingrooms are in mean warmer than bedrooms. The larger the apartments are the larger are the differences. The results provide a more nuanced picture of the temperature conditions in homes beneficial for better input data for building energy simulations. (Less)
