Özet

In this study, the data set of the past 32 years obtained from Turkish State Meteorological Services was used. With this data set, heating degree-hour values of Karabuk province were estimated according to eleven different indoor reference temperatures (18-28 degrees C). The increase or the decrease in energy demand was estimated proportionally depending on the condition that the indoor reference temperature, which was selected based on the heating degree-hour values of Karabuk province, is above or below the range of 1-11 degrees C. This study indicates that minor arrangements to be made pertaining to the indoor temperature without disturbing the comfort of the environment will make a significant contribution to reduce the global warming originating from environmental-air pollution as well as the energy dependency of our country.
