What is adaptive comfort?

Share this Post:
Adaptive comfort builds on the principle that people experience differently and adapt, up to a certain extent, to a variety of indoor conditions, depending on their clothing, their activity and general physical condition. Therefore, contrary to the conventional cooling which is based on pre-calculated temperatures and humidity levels, the adaptive approach is based on a non fixed set of conditions, taking into account thermal perception and behavior of the user, requiring him to take an active role in controlling his indoor environment.
