The problematic of dynamic simulation of heating/cooling in the building is discussed with the two main families of simulation tools: the “special purpose” programmes, which normally use algebraic combinations of analytical formulas, and “general purpose” programmes, which can apply to a large range of systems, but are more difficult to use. Unlike the first category, the second category of programmes provide information on process dynamics. Some examples, which clearly require a dynamic approach, are then presented. Finally, a solar heated building is simulated as well as a heat exchanger pile system as examples.
