The role of parameters in identification methodology in passive solar research is discussed. Comparison of several methods shows that identified parameters give an unexpected spread in the value range. It is necessary to examine more closely the parameters, their physical meaning and the way they are derived from mathematical parameters. This paper approaches the matter from the simple energy balance equation, which can be seen as the first step in the process of identification.
