Comfort

Comfort Science and Engineering

Homes should "feel" good as well as look good. One Sky Homes designs and builds homes to "feel" great and look great. Our comfort engineering addresses three main areas:

Thermal Comfort

Temperature levels of ambient air, surfaces of objects and building assemblies

Radiant temperature symmetry vs assymetry in occupied spaces

Temperature continuity between different building levels and rooms

Avoidance of drafts, large temperature differentials, extreme hot/cold surfaces (eg windows)

 

Acoustical Comfort

Noise reduction through acoustical attentuation features in building assemblies

Design and sound isolation of noise generating building systems ...eg HVAC

Goal: quiet, tranquil spaces

Better concentration, relaxation and sleep

 

Respiratory Comfort

Inter-related to indoor air quality and health criteria ...see Health

Better concentration, relaxation and sleep
