Abstract

The evaluation of the feeling of Thermal Comfort can also be achieved by directly asking users of indoor environments. After all, this is the same approach taken by Fanger. In these cases, taking the questionnaire by which you can determine the indexes of judgment (PMV and PPD) and indexes of preference on the desirable conditions of Thermal Comfort. This chapter describes the contents of the survey questions, and criteria for administration through surveys and/or interviews.
