Thermal Comfort is aptly described as the absence of discomfort. It's sensed by the body and precieved by the brain. If you want an exceptionally comfortable home, there are six primary factors that must be addressed .
Healthy Air - There really is nothing quite like opening a window or door and breathing clean, fresh air. As humans we need oxygen for life. But our myoptic mission of saving energy has created thousands of home with pollutants and moisture trapped inside where concentrations can build up and cause serious health problems.
Light - Humans need to be exposed to a sufficient amount of light for the biological clock to remain synchronized with the solar day. Insufficient light disrupts the cycle, leaving us to experience a decline in physiological functions, neurobehavioral performance, and sleep.
Noise - Human ears never sleep. So living in a noisy home can be bad for your health. Unwanted noise can function as a stressor on the body leading to an unecessary burden of stress, annoyance, sleep disturbance, cognitive impairment in children, hypertension and even cardiovascular disease.
