Abstract

HVAC diffusers have been developed that have dual functions for task and ambient air conditioning. In this study, we evaluated comfort according to air supply mode, strong or fluctuation mode, through a subjective experiment. We found that the fluctuation mode maintained greater comfort for longer compared with the strong mode under continuous airflow exposure. Therefore, the fluctuation mode is considered suitable for long-duration use. Moreover, field measurements in an actual office showed that the fluctuation mode was superior in terms of both comfort and energy saving compared with conventional air conditioning.
