The standard has a separate method for determining acceptable thermal conditions in occupant-controlled naturally conditioned spaces.

Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual, per unit of skin surface are expressed in units of met equal to As the voice of the U.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The second method is to add or subtract individual garment clo value to achieve the clothing ensemble in question. When occupant is sitting, one has to realize the insulation effect of the chair, and the decrease of insulation due to compression of the air in the clothing. Retrieved 24 November Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. As described within the standard: For an occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, the exceedance hours are the sum of hours when the operative temperature falls outside of the lower and upper boundaries of the comfort zone.

When the duration of an activity is equal or less than one hour, one can use a time-weighted metabolic rate. If the occupant is moving, it also affects the insulation value of clothing. Accurate data from the measurement using thermal manikins is asyrae.

For the first, it is not correct to use the average clothing insulation value to ashrad the desired thermal conditions for all occupants.

This table can be used together with the previous one, so that one can add 5-52010 subtract the clothing ensemble from the clo value of each garment. To evaluate the probability of satisfaction from satisfaction surveys, the standard suggests dividing the number of the votes falling between “just satisfied” and “very satisfied” by the total number of votes in that questions. And this equation is only valid when the metabolic rate is between 1.


If there are multiple such locations, the measurement can be performed at a representative location.

Except sedentary activities, metabolic rate for all other activities is likely to have range of variation. The standard addresses the four primary environmental factors temperaturethermal radiationhumidityand air speed and two personal factors activity and clothing that affect thermal comfort. It is also specified that the methods provided by this standard are no longer valid when the clothing insulation exceed 1. A occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space is where the thermal conditions of the space are primarily regulated by occupant-controlled openings.

In the body of the standard was rewritten in mandatory language, with informative language moved from the body of the standard to informative appendices.

The environmental factors addressed in this standard are temperature, thermal radiation, humidity, and air speed; the personal factors are those of activity and clothing. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.

Operative temperatures may not fluctuate more than 1.

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

The most recent version of the standard was published in When occupants do not have control over the cyclical variation or drifts in indoor environmental conditions, the conditions within this section must be met. Need more than one copy? The answers of open-ended questions from “very dissatisfied” occupants should be documented for later analysis.

Standard 55 specifies conditions for acceptable thermal environments and is intended for use in design, operation, and commissioning of buildings and other occupied spaces. The measurement locations should be where the occupants are expected to spend time in. Section 7 underwent major revisions for measuring thermal comfort in existing spaces including procedures for physical measurements and survey methods, and how to evaluate and report results.

So far, all the clothing insulation value can be used when the occupant is standing.

Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

The comfort zone boundaries must be adjusted to the air movements, and the zone conditions should be adjusted to avoid local thermal discomfort. The standard reminds the users that they should use their own judgment to match the activities being considered to asrae comparable activities in the table. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. This page was last edited on 12 Septemberat To demonstrate compliance the following must be documented, where applicable.


Clothing insulation is the resistance to sensible heat transfer provided by a clothing ensemble expressed in units of clo, which is a unit to quantify the insulation provided by garments aahrae clothing ensembles. The third method is to add all the clo value of each garment to match the clothing ensemble in question. It was revised in,and Considering that a sleeping person or one in reclining posture will be provided with sufficient 552-010 with the bedding material, and he or she is also free to adjust, it is impossible to determine the clothing insulation effect for these occupants unless they are immobile.

Both of these sections are clarified and streamlined for use by owners and third-party rating systems. It was first published inand since has been updated every three to six years. Views Read Edit View history. In general, body motion decreases the clothing insulation by pumping air through clothing.

For a mechanically conditioned space at an instance in time, the PMV and SET model shall be used to establish the comfort zone, and the local thermal discomfort shall be evaluated against the limit posed this standard as well.

As for point-in-time surveys, the survey should be solicited during the time of occupancy, and the satisfaction scale ought to be continuous. Compliance is achieved if the conditions provide thermal neutrality, measured as falling between Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning Building engineering Heat transfer Architecture Architecture occupations.

The standard suggests that the time of measurements should last two or more hours long, and it should also be a representative time of the year for this specific building.
