Based on the building of a kindergarten in Weinan, Shaanxi Province, this paper explores the influence of different envelope structures and heating modes on the indoor thermal environment for the energy saving and thermal comfort of the existing buildings. Using operating temperature as the evaluation index of thermal comfort, the 15 designed schemes were simulated through Energyplus software and actual measurement to obtain the operating temperature change law and annual heating energy consumption value. The envelope structure optimized by choosing energy-saving building materials such as expansion perlite and foam cement is obviously conducive to the improvement of indoor thermal comfort, and the thickness of the insulation layer increases, and the operating temperature increases accordingly; Although the standard effective temperature in intermittent heating mode is slightly lower than that in continuous heating mode, the standard effective temperature rises significantly with the extension of preheating time, which can meet the requirements of thermal comfort.After energy saving transformation, the total heating energy consumption of the kindergarten building is reduced by up to 3644 GJ, and the energy-saving rate reaches 67%.
Key words: thermal comfort / energy saving / standard effective temperature / envelope structure / intermittent heating
