Full Description

The specific objectives of this research were:

1. To review and summarize existing literature on productivity and the links to HVAC systems and control.
2. To define methods for the measurement of productivity, and to develop protocols for experimentation on the effect of HVAC systems on productivity that are acceptable to researchers in the building industry.

The scope of this research project was limited to the evaluation of relationships between measures of indoor environmental quality, as provided by HVAC systems, and measures of productivity. Three tasks were identified, to address the objectives. Section 2.0 of this report summarizes each of these three tasks. Conclusions and recommendations of this research are summarized in Section 3.0.
