The credibility and confidence in usage of a simulation program must be underpinned by an acceptably robust validation process. Over the years, various techniques have been employed to validate thermal simulation programs of buildings to facilitate continuous improvement of software development and acceptability. This study introduces the Bland–Altman method comparison analysis as a simulation validation tool to statistically evaluate the agreement between monitored temperatures and predicted thermal analysis simulated operating temperatures of detached dwellings in the UK. The findings of this work give the indication that there is very strong agreement between the monitored temperatures and the thermal simulation analysis results.
