The application of brick cultural heritage buildings for public use very often reveals the confrontation of indoor microclimate requirements. Some requirements are applied only for the premises attended by the visiting people and other requirements – for the elements or protected exhibits of cultural heritage. Sufficient microclimate indicators can be provided by modern engineering systems, the selection of which is based on several criteria (microclimate requirements, energy efficiency, the amount of investment, operating costs, etc.). This work analyses several variants of microclimate systems for different building application, based on Panemune castle example and considering the possible difference in cultural heritage requirements. The calculated results are evaluated by multiple criteria evaluation. The article was prepared according to the project material VAT-57/2012 “Innovative methods of regeneration of architectural heritage: castles of Panemune”.

Keywords:brick heritage buildings; microclimate systems; HVAC systems.
