The factors affecting the measurement accuracy of (perfectly calibrated) heat flux sensors in buildings are discussed. A preliminary attempt is made to quantify this measurement error using dimensionless parameters. This attempt indicates that the method offers some promise and that some previously little-discussed items, such as the absolute size of the sensor, may have a great effect on the accuracy. An additional heat flux sensor is described, and a simple calibration method using a heater foil is outlined.
