The determination of a normalised heating energy consumption of dwellings can be achieved in different ways: basic and complex calculation methods as well as experimental procedures can be considered. This paper deals with a certification method based on a limited monitoring of the dwelling coupled with a pseudo dynamic analysis tool. Firstly, the energy performance of a monitored dwelling (a modern single family dwelling and situated in a mild climate) is estimated on the basis of previous energy bills and the application of the EN832 calculation method; secondly, the obtained figures are compared with those resulting from the pseudo-dynamic analysis of the monitoring results.
