When quoting the international standard EN ISO 7730, thermal comfort is “that condition of mind which expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment”. In other words, it’s about creating a comfortable environment where a person isn’t feeling too hot or too cold.
There will be several scenarios where you will need to invest in a thermal comfort analysis. These are:
- BREEAM Thermal Comfort credit
- Mitigating the risk of overheat in existing and proposed buildings
- Supporting planning applications
- Meeting industry standards, healthcare and education
Using a dynamic simulation that predicts the comfort levels of the building, we are able to carry out a thermal comfort analysis. This technology allows us to better understand the required comfort levels needed in the current climate, and what solutions are needed in order to meet the requirements.
How can we help with thermal comfort?
At Pro Sustainability we offer a collaborative approach when it comes to performing a thermal comfort analysis. We give a flexible service that allows us to work with your team in order to correctly perform the analysis.
