The starting point is the challenge of ensuring an acceptable summer indoor climate without active cooling and air conditioning in the framework of a set of ambitious renovation measures. The main goal of this collaborative project is the development and first demonstration of an innovative technology air movement, to increase user satisfaction and support night ventilation at workplaces.
Comfort surveys of employees at the Dillingen district office: the effect of the integrated ceiling fans on users’ satisfaction and the resulting behavior after installation are analyzed and incorporated into comfort models as well as user behavior models. The data collected allows an evaluation of the user comfort before and after the renovation or with and without ceiling panel.
User acceptance laboratory studies: in order to validate the effect on users’ satisfaction, laboratory studies are carried out in the LOBSTER room climate test stand at KIT.
