Tool for heating energy and temperature simulation in building
 
Hi
My intention is to verify an inhouse software for transient simulation of buildings (heating energy, temperature, loss) by using an existing tool. I'm looking for a tool which allows to configure layer material values and ventilation as well as solar radiation.

OpenFOAM: As far as I see now, I would have to implement a solver and some utilities, but I am still not sure if OpenFOAM is really a convenient tool.

My question: Does anyone have the survey to tell me if ansys is more convenient for my simulation than OpenFOAM?

Thank you for your help!
