Thermal Time Constant (TTC) indicates the time required for change of 63.2% of temperature difference.
This work develops procedure to determine temperature changes in building by application of number of few TTCs or fraction of TTC.
Such approach allows development of formula to find the time for change the inside air temperature of the building by 1 degree or time to reach defined temperature.
Higher TTC results in slower change of room temperature, contributing to thermal comfort, to quality of the building and to energy conservation. The procedure developed in the work is for two purposes: to find the temperature change in the period of time and to find the period of time of specific temperature change.
