The objective of this study was to use simulation as a tool to establish a possible relationship between orientation and energy performance of conventional residential buildings in Ghardaia. The findings of this study, when integrated in our site, will help in the realisation of efficient and sustainable energy performance of our built environment.To illustrate the impact of the guidance on indoor air temperatures and solar gain of habitat has been studied for this type of climate (semi-arid). Along with this simulation using a TRNSYS (version16.1) was performed to validate the results of the field and to test several possibilities for guidance and improvements to determine the elements that can be used to better conditions.From these results, it appears that the north and south directions during this period are more favorable with a small advantage for the south orientation. This is explained by the amounts of daily radiation incident on the two facades that are not significantly different [1, 2].
