The building sector is the second largest in terms of energy consumption, after the transport sector. In the context of reducing and saving energy for environmental and economic reasons, both the European Union and Greece as a member state have issued directives and legislated to this end.This present paper is entitled "Design and Simulation of Buildings for Energy Automation of Buildings" and its object is to simulate a house energy using modern central heating and cooling systems, and to compare them in order to achieve thermal comfort.Specifically, it was studied and then followed the methodology of energy modeling of a house in the area of Aigio (128 m2). Google SketchUp Open - Studio PlugIn was used to model the building while Energy Plus was used for energy simulation and to extract the results.Finally, when presenting the results, the performance of the selected central heating-cooling system (VRF) was compared with conventional oil and gas systems and with the use of Photovoltaic System.
