In the paper a description of heat transfer in one-dimensional crystalline solids is presented. The lattice Boltzmann method based on Boltzmann transport equation is used to simulate the nanoscale heat transport in thin metal films. The coupled lattice Boltzmann equations for electrons and phonons are applied to analyze the heating process of thin metal films via laser pulse. Such approach in which the parameters appearing in the problem analyzed are treated as constant values is widely used, but in the paper the interval values of relaxation times and electron-phonon coupling factor are taken into account. The problem formulated has been solved by means of the interval lattice Boltzmann method using the rules of directed interval arithmetic. In the final part of the paper the results of numerical computations are shown.
