Description

This paper introduces the results of a one-year research, to gather and analyse data on the traditional housing buildings in Kukes region, Albania. The energy performance and the thermal comfort conditions in five different buildings were examined. The Design Builder Energy simulation software was used to analyse the thermal performance of the selected typologies. Detailed construction activity and weather information was applied in modelling the houses. Simulation results showed that these buildings require only heating during the winter. As for the first villa, seven improvement scenarios were applied and examined. The same scenarios incorporate the use of thermal insulation of the walls and the roof as well as the use of double glazing. The results suggest that improvements and insulations in building fabrics could reduce the annual energy consumption up to 35 %.
