According to the ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55, Thermal comfort is the condition of mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by subjective evaluation. Maintaining the standard of thermal comfort for building occupants is one of the important goals of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) design engineers. Most people will feel comfortable at room temperature, colloquially a range of temperatures around 20 to 22 °C, but this may vary greatly between individuals and depending on factors such as activity level, clothing, and humidity.
The modern buildings and offices are very often already equipped with smart and expensive HVAC system. However, the fine tuning is performed before the normal day to day operation starts and this leads to many errors. After the occupants start to use the building space, the air flow changes, temperature and humidity distribution does not reflect the designed model. In addition, HVAC sensors or controllers cover only limited area. Climabots can be equally distributed over the whole building area to measure air temperature, humidity and air flow speed and calculate the thermal comfort according the ASHRAE Standard 55.
Measured data and measurement history reports can then help HVAC company to adjust their system to meet all the standards and requirements of building occupants. This can lead to overall productivity increase and higher level of well-being in offices, public areas or schools.
We provide thermal comfort analysis and well-being monitoring as a service or as a product. Which means that the climabots can be placed in building areas temporarily just for the measurement and analysis period or can be installed permanently.
