Let’s review: A figure called UA ref which was the rate of heat loss from a building expressed in the units of Btu/Hr ˃ F: UA ref = ( Є (UA)) + (F x P) + (VHC air x VOL x AC/hr) UA ref was one of the terms in our balance point temperature formula along with Qi (internal gains). UA ref .

You will remember that balance point temperature, the outdoor temperature at which the furnace must come on, was defined as: T bp = T therm - ( Qi / UA ref) An assumed balance point temperature of 65 ˃ F is an important assumption in the conventional use of the degree day method for calculating annual energy consumption for heating a building. Balance Point Temperature .
