ASHRAE Standard 55 provides clear guidance on the conditions required for comfort, but unfortunately many designers do not fully understand how to use the data from that standard to design an effective enclosure that controls heat and air flow to promote occupant comfort. This session reviews the basics of how building envelopes can impact occupant comfort and provides design guidance for avoiding problems.


1.Understand how building envelopes control heat and air flows.

2.Identify envelope components and details which may negatively impact occupant comfort.

3.Design effective envelope systems that balance performance and occupant comfort.

4.Apply the criteria from ASHRAE Standard 55 to building envelope design.
