Three clicks to calculate Degree Days

Why do we use Heating and Cooling Degree Days?

In colder winters, buildings require more heating, and in hotter summers, more air conditioning. Degree Days calculated by the Energy Data GmbH take the variability of the weather out of the equation and help you to track, manage, and optimize energy consumption in millions of buildings worldwide.

That is why Degree Days are an important indicator used by energy managers, factory managers, facility owners as well as home owners and energy enthusiasts to analyze energy usage patterns.

Our Degree Day Calculator is a quick, simple, and complete tool to help you analyze and optimize how your heating and cooling consumption. No more copy & pasting Excel data, no complicated formulas – just a single click for your specific location.
