Characterization of Long-Term Sub-Hourly Thermal Comfort Performance Data
Hyojin Kim, Lisa C. Ng, Brian P. Dougherty, William V. Payne
Current thermal comfort standards do not provide guidelines on how to graphically characterize and benchmark long-term, sub-hourly, thermal comfort. In an effort to address this void, several statistical characterizations and advanced visualization methods are demonstrated for quantifying and understanding the long-term thermal comfort achieved in single-family homes. One year of sub-hourly field data were used for this study. The data corresponds to times when two air-source heat pump (HP) systems were alternately used to condition the same well- insulated, well-sealed residence, the Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility (NZERTF) that is located on the campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD, USA. Kim et al. (2019) provides more details on the house, tested systems, and thermal comfort and system performance data collection.
