In this work, the results obtained during the monitoring of a building together with the adjustment curves achieved with the numeric simulation program SIMEDIF are presented. SIMEDIF has been developed in the INENCO (Non Conventional Energy Research Institute), Salta, Argentina. In the measured data (from 1 to Aug. 4, 1997) the light weight character of the construction is evidenced by the lack of an appreciable phase out between the interior and external temperature. The expected dissimilar behavior between the rooms facing South and North was observed. During the day, the warmest room is the one that faces the South and West, as expected. The agreement between measured and simulated data is considered acceptable by the authors, within a 1 °C error.
