In either case, measurements shall be taken in locations where the most extreme values of the thermal parameters are estimated or observed to occur. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. For given values of humidity, air speed, metabolic rate, and clothing insulation, a comfort zone may be determined. The system shall have controls that enable it to meet comfort requirements at less than full system capacity.

Users of this standard should use their judgment to match the activities being considered to comparable activities in the table. Absolute humidity need be determined at only one location within the occupied zone in each occupied room or HVAC-controlled zone, provided it can be demonstrated that there is no reason to expect large humidity variations within that space.

CBE Thermal Comfort Tool for ASHRAE

The effect of floor surface temperature on comfort: If yes, provide a brief explanation as to why the increase is justified. A new and simpler method for estimating the thermal insulation of a clothing ensemble.


To evaluate the thermal comfort over a period of time in a mechanically conditioned space, the exceedance hours are the sum of all the hours when the absolute value of PMV is greater than 0.

The requirements of this section are based on environmental temperatures near the center of the comfort zone. The requirements of this section also apply to cyclic variations with a period greater than 15 minutes.

When thermal conditions in the occupied zone have a high sensitivity to time of day and weather conditions, the measurement shall be made such that the high and low extremes of the thermal parameters are determined.

ASHRAE 55 – Wikipedia

Compliance is achieved if the conditions provide thermal neutrality, measured as falling between The body of available data does not contain significant information regarding the comfort requirements of children, the disabled, or the infirm. The allowable differences in air temperature from the ankle level to the head level may be determined from Table 5.

K Standing Relaxed 5. Our “watch” feature allows you to stay current on all aspects of this specific credit. All informative background information has been moved to informative appendices.

Mechanical ventilation with unconditioned air may be utilized, but opening and closing of windows must be the xshrae means of regulating the thermal conditions in the space.

Part II, College age females. Thermal comfort is the condition of mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by subjective evaluation.

Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

K Office, school 4. Radiant asymmetry shall be measured at the 0. Individuals will adjust the bedding to suit individual preferences.


The general maintenance, operation, and performance of the building systems should be stated, followed by more specific comments on the maintenance and operation of the automatic controls and manually adjustable controls and the response of the system to each.

For the first, it is not correct to use the average clothing insulation value to determine the desired thermal conditions for all occupants. Radiant asymmetry is the difference between the plane qshrae temperature in opposite directions.

These ashra are valid for an average adult with surface skin area of 1. For thermal comfort—this is the standard. Place a check mark next to the articles of clothing that you are currently wearing as you fill out this sheet.

Radiant temperature asymmetry between ceiling and floor, asjrae air and walls must be limited to reduce discomfort. Significant structural and decor items should be shown and identified if they affect indoor comfort.

Thermal comfort – compliance

Specific limits in the adjustment of manual controls should be stated. Perception of draught in ventilated spaces.

Air turbulence and sensation of draught. Clothing variability among occupants in a space is an important consideration in applying this standard. Under all expected operating conditions, air speed nondirectionalair temperature, and humidity shall be verified.
