Reducing heating temperature is a universally recognized energy saving measure. However, the same city has buildings completed in different years and with different functional USES at the same time. It is an important issue worth discussing whether it is reasonable for the government to advocate reducing heating temperature by the same range. Based on DOE medium-sized office building as the object, using the Beijing meteorological database system, the thermal characteristics of four envelopment structures representing different completion years, the annual heating energy saving and relative energy saving ratio when the set indoor heating temperature is reduced by the same range are studied. The results show that the worse the thermal performance of the envelope is, the greater the annual heating energy is when the heating setting temperature drops by the same extent. It indicates that the older the building is, the better heating energy saving effect and more heating cost can be achieved by advocating lowering the heating setting temperature of the same range. For the annual relative energy saving ratio, the older buildings with worse envelope structure are slightly higher, while the new buildings with better envelope structure are slightly lower, but they are similar on the whole. It is proved that the policy of reducing heating temperature by the same range in the same city is reasonable for achieving similar energy saving ratio.
