Temperature logging for three Malaysian residential houses is used to validate the Malaysian weather data year (hourly values) and to validate the simulation software Bsim for use in Malaysia. The fit between simulated and measured data is satisfactory, as only a maximum difference of 0.5°C is observed. Using the Bsim software it is concluded that roof insulation and night ventilation are the two most significant measures for improvement of the thermal performance of residential houses. The building simulation software Energy10 is found to underestimate the indoor temperatures slightly.
