Abstract

Task/ambient conditioning systems (TAC) are being investigated and are effective air conditioning methods for offices, which can keep steady temperatures, efficiently remove thermal loads, and create a comfortable environment that is pleasant for users. In this study, subjective experiments with a task conditioning system were conducted to investigate thermal comfort and productivity by field measurements. Air change effectiveness of the system was also evaluated using SF6 tracer gas.
