Topic: ACHIEVING THERMAL COMFORT IN DESIGN AND PRACTICE

Human comfort is more than just a number on a thermostat. ASHRAE’s thermal comfort standard (Standard 55 – 2017) includes many factors that affect occupant satisfaction including air velocity, clothing levels, and outdoor conditions. This presentation will cover how to size systems to meet ASHRAE 55, how to commission a building’s comfort level for LEED points, and how to estimate the financial implications of enhancing occupant comfort.
