A simplified method for predicting the CDH (cooling degree hours) and HDH (heating degree hours) is developed in this paper. It is simple, because only 48 monthly weather data, which can be obtained from any weather observation station, are used. It is accurate, as statistical technique has been applied in calculating the CDH and HDH. Actual calculation also verified that the inaccuracies of the simplified CDH and HDH calculations are about 3% and 8%, respectively. Actual calculation has been performed in utilizing this principle and the weather data in Taiwan, a subtropical island in the Pacific. The results will be used as bases in weather data categorization and building energy code establishment in this area.
