Investigating the probability of behavioural responses to cold thermal discomfort

  title={Investigating the probability of behavioural responses to cold thermal discomfort},
  author={Stephanie Gauthier},
In buildings, occupant behaviour is recognised as a major contributing factor to energy demand and in particular to heating consumption. To achieve thermal comfort within the heating season, people report to use heat in very different ways; for example behaviours include switching on the heating system, putting on warm clothes, drawing curtains, changing rooms, making a hot drink and using a hot water bottle. While research has focused on subjective accounts using interviews, diaries and… CONTINUE READING
