Abstract

The degree-day method is one technique that allows to have information about the energy consumption of any building. Design and manufacturing of heating or cooling systems in buildings are based on climatic data. The climatic data used in the design of these systems for long years allow the results to be more accurate. In the study area, the Euphrates basin has been chosen as one of the hottest regions in Turkey. Long annual outdoor air dry-bulb temperature of four cities (Sanliurfa, Adiyaman, Gaziantep, Kilis) in the Euphrates basin is taken from the General Directorate of Meteorology. A six-week period in the base temperature was determined for production of broiler house values. Long annual dry-bulb temperature values in the research area are determined by comparing the base temperature number of days in the heating and cooling temperatures. It was determined that the maximum heating day values were of Gaziantep city and minimum heating day values of Sanliurfa city. During breeding broilers, the recommended six different base temperatures with between heating and cooling degree-day values regression coefficients are calculated for all provinces. In all provinces, the regression coefficients were found 0.999 and a positive aspect was determined at very high rates. As a result, it may be possible to use the degree-day method for knowledge about the energy requirement to be held in any region for broiler houses. In addition, knowledge can be obtained about whether it would be appropriate in terms of energy consumption in any region in broiler houses.
