Thermal comfort is a condition where an individual(s) express the satisfaction or dissatisfaction within the thermal environment. The thermal environment is those characteristics of the environment which can result in a person’s thermal discomfort response. In terms of the individual’s senses, thermal comfort or discomfort is a sensation of hot, warm, slightly warmer, neutral, slightly cooler, cool and cold.
Relative humidity and ambient temperature become the most critical factors for maintaining satisfactory thermal comfort. Unfortunately, however, temperature preferences vary greatly among individuals and there is no one temperature that can satisfy everyone. Therefore, maintaining consistent thermal conditions in the environment (office/home) is very important.
