Abstract

Field investigations and testing on thermal comfort were conducted in Eastern China including 8 representative cities of 4 climate zones of severe cold, cold, hot summer and cold winter, hot summer and warm winter etc. Both subjective questionnaire survey in terms of thermal sensation vote (TSV) and objective on-site measurements were carried out. Clothing levels during summer and winter in 4 climate zones were obtained, and correlations between clothing insulation against operative temperature and outdoor temperature were found, different adaptive models of climate and comfort indoors were developed as well. The energy savings for cooling of indoor design temperature (with and without adaptive model) were calculated in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, and the total percentage of saving is about 5%, 6.5% and 8%, respectively.
