In a changing climate and with ever increasing energy standards that lead to low and zero energy buildings, the provision of hot water in buildings will become more significant in relation to the overall energy consumption. Higher demand on the provision of hot water consumption has been documented and will occur around activities such as laundry, dishwashing, food preparation, bathing and cleaning activities. The accurate prediction and simulation of hot water in building design is therefore crucial and we need to rethink how we estimate the amount of hot water in our buildings. This paper will investigate how hot water demand and provision in homes is simulated via a number of different tools. The input and output differences with respect to hot water are compared to measured data of a building in the UK.
