Indoor Environmental Quality - Credit 7.1

Thermal Comfort - Design (1 points)

Back to LEED Checklist


The intent of this credit is to comply with ASHRAE Standard 55-2004 for thermal comfort standards within established ranges per climate zone. Humidity control is no longer required. 

Incidental concrete application: In a naturally ventilated building, internal concrete and other high-mass materials may provide important forms of thermal storage. However, the design must be careful to avoid conditions which create condensation problems.
