Meeting thermal comfort in a non-air-conditioned residential building.


Can a project (non-air-conditioned building without evaporative cooling) achieving thermal comfort for only 60% of the occupied hours comply with the mandatory requirements of GRIHA?


Compliance with thermal comfort conditions as per National building code-2005/ASHRAE 55 – 2010/Indian Adaptive Comfort Model is a mandatory requirement for the projects. The non-air conditioned projects in the hot and dry climate must demonstrate compliance for at least 90% of all occupied hours.
