(#7783) Thermal comfort compliance in non-AC buildings


There are six buildings in our project, out of which 3 are air-conditioned and rest are non -air-conditioned. We know the process for demonstrating thermal comfort compliance for AC buildings. However, for Non-AC buildings, can we show compliance with eQuest software by keeping the set point less than 33 degree Celsius and running the model after inserting the weather data? Also, can we provide a ceiling fan system or something similar to meet the thermal comfort compliance in the non-AC buildings?


The process defined by the project team is acceptable. To meet thermal comfort, project team can provide the wind flow (by using ceiling fans) within the prescribed range of NBC.
