Chinese kang, a potentially energy-efficient domestic heating system in China, uses high thermal mass to store surplus heat from the stove during cooking and releases it later for space heating.
Zhi Zhuang, Yuguo Li, and Bin Chen
Time lags and decrement factors for multi-layer materials without air gaps under air-conditioned and free floating conditions were obtained using the response factor and finite volume methods.

Conduction transfer function (CTF) is widely used to calculate conduction heat transfer in building cooling loads and energy calculations.
Xiangqian Li, Youming Chen, Jeffrey D. Spitler, Dan Fisher
This paper explores the simulation of the thermal performance of a radiant floor for heating and cooling that is connected with an underground heat exchanger installed under the concrete floor of a house.
