New paper investigates the impact of the perceived control over the indoor environment on the perceived thermal comfort and IAQ in schools
One of the newest scientific publications of Eurac Research has been released online the last October for the Journal of Building Engineering.
The paper "Exploring the impact of perceived control on thermal comfort and indoor air quality perception in schools" inolved our researchers in the analysis of the effect of perceived control on thermal comfort and indoor air quality (IAQ).
With the aim of exploring the relationship between perceived control and thermal comfort and indoor air quality (IAQ) in school buildings, our researchers - together with the Department of Energy, Systems, Territory and Constructions Engineering of the University of Pisa - conducted a three-month field study during the heating season involving 26 school classrooms in the Italian Province of Pisa.
The experimental campaign was conducted by carrying out measurements of thermal and IAQ parameters. In addition to instrumental measurements, 859 questionnaires were filled in by students concurrently with objective measurements. The study shows that the perception of IAQ by the occupants is inversely proportional to the operative temperature and CO2 concentration. Furthermore, it emerges that students with the perception of control express better subjective judgments regarding the IAQ.
