The ideal ambient temperature and comfort level for an individual varies from one person to another. While some people complain that the environment is too warm another might feel that the temperature is on the chillier side. Task ambient conditioning aims at solving this problem by regulating the airflow within a given space.�
The principle behind task ambient conditioning is that a change in airflow will help change a person’s perception regarding the temperature of the environment by as much as 8°C. In a task ambient conditioning environment, it is the flow of cool air that does the cooling. It is due to this that the average temperature can be set higher and energy can be saved on cooling. People who wish to feel cool increase the airflow while those who want to remain warm reduce the airflow or divert it.
