Thermal Comfort and Energy Consumption in Healthcare Buildings – A Review

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

As special public buildings, healthcare building have high requirements for thermal comfort and are also large energy consumption. This paper reviews the thermal comfort and energy saving of healthcare buildings. It discusses the importance of thermal comfort in healthcare buildings and the current research in different regions. In order to solve the problem of thermal discomfort, air conditioning energy consumption is the most important part of healthcare buildings’ total energy consumption. Finally, this paper puts forward the prospect: analysing the quantitative relationship between thermal comfort and energy consumption is meaningful to energy saving of healthcare buildings.
