Which HB temperature output is comparable to real world recorded data?

Hi all,

I recorded hourly temperatures of a room for a month with a data logger.
Now, I want to model that room using HB-LB and compare the results. I don’t know which temperature output is comparable with the recorded data. Operative temperature or air temperature?!

Thanks so much.

You probably need the operative which weighs the air temperature and the MRT.
The only thing is that E+ calculates this in the center of the thermal zone. Hopefully your measurements were also done near the center of the room.
