Building Knowledge Spring Camp: Thermal Comfort
Huntsville, Ontario
Hosted by Building Knowledge Canada

Let’s talk COMFORT - The highly acclaimed Rocky Mountain Institute recently stated, “Seventy percent of whole home performance customers cited comfort as a reason for their upgrade.” Why is it, then, that in an industry built around creating thermally comfortable environments most can’t accurately describe, nor define comfort? Robert Bean will take us through the fundamentals and applications of thermal comfort and why this is the becoming the new metric for the next generation of housing. Robert is an authority on indoor environmental quality and the human factors related to thermal comfort. He serves on ANSI/ASHRAE Standing Committee 55 - Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy. He specializes in building and human factors to design healthy and comfortable indoor climates in high performance homes. At Camp he will help bridge the gap between building performance and the choices you make in design, interior finishes and HVAC systems and your client’s physiology and psychology comfort.
