Climate zones

The climate zone division in building climatology (Liedl, 2011) defines five main types with their subtypes. Differences exist in terms of latitude, altitude and continentality. The heating and cooling degree days and the humidifying and dehumidifying degree days give more specific information about the local climate and show specific aspects, as all the data are mean values. Given that no micro climatic influences were considered, more detailled examinations are necessary for individual cases.
