An understanding of human thermal comfort has proven to be one of the key components of energy efficiency in buildings. Human comfort is more to comfort than just temperature and humidity. For instance, the radiative energy that is emitted from walls, the air speed and also physiological factors such a as the people’s metabolic rate, the skin wettedness, and skin emissivity all have an effect.
