The paper presents the results of the study of the microclimate of living quarters with a skirting board water heating system and fresh air input through adjustable window sashes. The authors substantiate the use of the STAR CCM program + software package for building a numerical model of skirting board type convector in living quarters. For testing, there was used a unit in a residential building with typical for living quarters dimensions which has fresh air supply through adjustable window sashes. Skirting convector-type heating unit, which was to be mounted on accommodation external wall instead of the skirting board, was computer-simulated. Convector heat flow was sufficient to compensate accommodation heat loss underrating 10%. The temperature field distribution was derived for the premises and on internal surface of external enclosures. There was established a temperature increase on the internal face cladding and resulting temperature increase inside the apartment. There was revealed an area of discomfort in the serviced zone of the premises. The authors make a conclusion that the studied variant of the skirting board heating water system fails to sufficiently supply heating according to the standards of the microclimate parameters in the premises.
