Post Thermal mass of a house
Hi All,

A few months back I finaly got around to connecting my Weather station to my computer and began uploading data to Weather Underground.

since then I get nice pretty graphs on my desktop showing amoungst other things Indoor and out door temperature.

IN watchin the graphs particularly ove rthe last few weeks where I am not using any form of heating or cooling in the house I have noticed that the indoor temperature follows the outdoor temp with about a 3 hour delay.

I am trying to work out the mathematical relationship between the two graphs to determine what I belive would be the thermal constant of the house. Then once I can determine that I Should be able to determine if changes I make like adding blinds on the outside of the windows in the summer etc. actual make a qantifiable difference.

Any suggestions or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Ill try and post a sample graph to show you what I mean.
