Paper Title:
Indoor Thermal Comfort and its Effect on Building Energy Consumption
  Abstract

The indoor thermal comfort and its effect on building energy consumption have been conducted by literature reviewing in the study. The linear relationship and the related formulations of various thermal comfort indictors are summarized to evaluate the human comfort. These parameters include predicted mean vote, thermal sensation vote, adaptive predicted mean vote, thermal comfort vote, and thermal acceptability. Under different climatic or regional conditions, both relationships between thermal comfort parameters and indoor or outdoor air temperature, and between comfort vote and another comfort parameter, are summarized for their definition and formulation. The comfort parameters such as local air speed, neutral temperature, PMV set point and others will directly impact the building energy usage. It is of significance to seek an optimal alternative for energy savings.
