Thanks for a complete answer and the references.

comment Calculating outside temperature based on indoor measurements
@theUg no, just measure temperature inside the house with no heating or cooling on. I'm assuming a less than perfectly insulated house. Or does that mean the newtonian equation is assuming perfect exchange?

comment Calibrating an electronic temperature sensor based on power consumption
It would have been nice to be able to calculate even rough calibration. In theory, it's just jules-in minus jules-dissipated. I'm just not able to work out the jules-dissipated part :) I'd hope the measurement route remains consistent given that anything anomaly (say wind) that would affect the measured data, would also affect the calculated estimate.

comment Calibrating an electronic temperature sensor based on power consumption
I make a point of measuring ambient temp a few cm away from the device. knowing the heat generation rate (measure and computed) and measuring the dead device cooling rate, I'd like to be able to infer what the ambient temperature was if the sensor reports a given T.
