This paper focuses on the indoor climate in new Danish low-energy houses and discusses the issue of overheating in relation to evaluation methods and user satisfaction. The user satisfaction has been evaluated among 370 owners of new low-energy class 2015 detached single-family houses based on a questionnaire survey. The survey evaluated overall satisfaction, and more specifically satisfaction with the indoor climate parameters temperature, draught, air quality, noise and daylight, and also technical installations of the house. The survey showed satisfaction with living in new low-energy houses and more than 90% perceived the indoor environment as satisfactory both in summer and winter. The majority perceived the various indoor climate parameters to be better in their new low-energy house compared to conditions in their former house. Compared with earlier studies on previous generations of low-energy houses, problems with overheating seem to have decreased, as only 12% found temperature conditions to be unsatisfactory in summer.
