Abstract [en]

Two methodological approaches have been used to investigate thermal comfort amongoccupants in a Swedish block of flats; measurements and thermal comfort standards on the onehand, and qualitative interviews on the other. The purpose with this paper is to present, compareand discuss results from these two radically different methods. The results coincide concerningvariations of thermal comfort throughout the day, but are much less in accord in results whereoccupants express, or are presumed to complain of, thermal discomfort. The interviews showthat female occupants tend to suffer more from thermal discomfort than male occupants, a resultwhich is absent in the measurement methodology. The results give support to suggestions thatgender aspects should be taken more into account when determining and controlling thermalcomfort. The differing results also point at the importance of complementing standardizedthermal comfort measurements with surveys or qualitative interviews.
