Degree Days.net is an online software tool that calculates degree days using temperature data from Weather Underground. We at BizEE Software created Degree Days.net to help energy-saving professionals to use degree-day data more effectively.
In the summer of 2007 we wrote a detailed article about the problems with common degree-day-based calculations. A significant proportion of the problems highlighted in that article stemmed from the fact that good degree-day data was difficult to come by.
A few months after the article was published, it occurred to us that, rather than simply writing about the problem, it would be better for us to write some software to help fix it. This seems rather obvious in retrospect!
Anyway, Weather Underground very kindly gave us their permission to calculate degree days from their comprehensive database of worldwide weather data, and, after a lot of hard work, Degree Days.net was launched in Spring 2008.
