The Human Factors in Thermal Comfort and Indoor Air Quality
One would think an entire industry based on providing
safe, comfortable and healthy spaces, should be able to
easily describe how humans actually develop judgments about
the indoor environment. But as strange as it sounds industry
curriculum, field training and building codes generally only
address, “the hardware” (the building) and mostly ignore,
“the software”, (the occupants). Yet at the end of the day
it will always be a dissatisfied person who complains. It
seems only logical we should train practitioners to
understand how people sense and perceive to better
understand how buildings should be designed and constructed.

sensory systems of the human body.
