Energy optimization and consumption analysis is the first step in realizing smart houses. This paper incorporates the uncertainty of the effective parameters and probabilistically optimizes the energy consumption in a building. To this end, probability density functions (PDFs) of building uncertain parameters are modeled by empirical rule method and the energy usage in buildings is optimized. Energy-Plus and MATLAB softwares are respectively used to compute energy consumption in a building and to optimize energy consumption. Energy consumption of the building and the thermal comfort are considered as objective functions of the proposed multi-objective optimization problem. A 12-storey commercial building is used as a case study. The proposed probabilistic method is compared with the deterministic method to assess the proposed method,. The results show a significant difference between the deterministic and probabilistic cases. The maximum difference between the mean optimal values of variable parameters in these cases is about 34%. Finally, sensitivity of the results to the climate changes is also investigated in this paper.
