Occupant Comfort in an Office Setting
One of the biggest headaches building owners experience is occupant complaints about thermal comfort. In new construction, there is a high level of control over the building envelope and perimeter issues are more easily dealt with. In the renovation of existing and historic structures, there are often additional challenges, particularly where the space is used for either enclosed or open offices at the perimeter. One way to ward off the office grumbles associated with being too cold is by including perimeter radiant heat.
