In this thesis I have been comparing, by focusing on the responsiveness to changes in location, orientation, openings and thermal mass, as well as in its services and systems, the energy balance of a building, using the quasy-steady-state method according to EN 13790, and the dynamic simulation method of the IDA Indoor Climate and Energy programme. In the first part of the thesis, the design of a single family house and the usage of construction systems, openings and building systems will be presented. By changing individual parameters of the building, 18 variations have been created. Due to a great mismatch of the input climate data, it turns out that comparing and evaluating the results produced by both methods is highly difficult. Nevertheless, in the carried out analysis, it is possible to identify certain trends.
