This paper reviews different heating regimes applied to the same space, using building simulation. The construction of a computer simulation model to investigate past and present environments in a historic house library is described. The model simulated four hypothetical scenarios, based on real data. The simulation outputs were reviewed in terms of the risk of physical and chemical deterioration, and their relationship with an existing national standard for archives. The possibility of simulating past environments to investigate natural ageing is also discussed.
