A whole new definition of "Comfort"

We did our research and realized that what architects and engineers think is comfortable does not match what people expect from a comfortable home.

We developed a whole new—research-based—model for understanding people's feeling of comfort. This allows a better design, commercialization, and assessment of buildings.

If only people could talk!

This model is based on people's expectations and descriptions of comfortable homes. Their statements not only agree with a lot of the Building Science knowledge, but are also consistent across people.

The same patterns were found by interviewing people in Chile and New Zealand.
