Abstract

This study explores the interaction between perceived and calculated thermal comfort in Iranian office buildings. To achieve this, a questionnaire survey in six office buildings in Tehran (Iran) is conducted in conjunction with physical measurements. The study results reveal that there is a good agreement between perceived thermal sensation and calculated predicted mean vote (PMV) from the measurements for the majority of the offices (four out of six). This finding implies that the calculation of PMV is valid for the Iranian cultural situation in air conditioned and HVAC office buildings. The results also show that more than half of the studied offices are not in good compliance with the comfort levels suggested in ASHRAE Standard 55 and ISO Standard 7730.
