Courses of a year

Logging develops over the course of a year for global radiation, outdoor air temperature and absolute humidity provides an overview of the climate in each location. Values for the 8,760 hours of the year are relevant, as are the monthly mean values and extreme values. The amount and distribution of diffuse and direct radiation make it possible to determine periods of heavy cloud cover as well as those when sunshine permits the use of solar power. The seasonal course of outdoor air temperature shows the seasons and periods with a high cooling or heating energy demand as well as periods when natural or night ventilation is possible. The temperature level of the soil in layers close to the surface indicates the cooling potential of the soil as well as its ability to prewarm the supply airflow. The development of absolute humidity over the course of the year highlights the periods when there is a need for humidifying or dehumidifying. Extreme values provide dimensioning for technical equipment. Degree days are quantitative values give information on the energy demand for heating and cooling or (de)humidifying.

Courses of different climate parameters. Besides the seasonal course the ClimateTool also issues the mean values and the extreme values as well as calculating heating and cooling degree days or (de)humidifying gram days.

The representation of 8,760 hourly values for different climate parameters provides a quick overview of their seasonal change. Therefore it also allows a quick overview of necessary room conditioning systems for a comfortable room climate. Extreme values provide the dimensioning of technical equipment.
