The same applies to different degrees of activity: sitting people react much more sensitively to air movement and temperature fluctua­ tions than people who move about a lot.

0002%. Daylight and solar factors define day­light quality inside a room. Both values define the relationship of illuminance on the working plane to outdoor bright­ ness. The daylight factor is calculated for an overcast sky, in order to evaluate a given room independent of any solar protective devices or systems. The solar factor, on the other hand, is calculated for a sunny room with solar protection in order to allow evaluation of daylight conditions with solar protection active. This distinction is of importance in or­ der to compare façades, with and with­ out daylighting systems, across the board for any sky condition.

This means, for instance, that it is possible for the occupants to wear summer clothing with short-sleev­ ed shirts. If these prerequisites are met, then, additionally, a maximum 28°C indoor temperature needs to be adhered to, at all times, for occupied rooms. Otherwise, performance capacity tends to drop too low. Within this framework, it is quite possible to achieve a higher degree of occupant satisfaction than in buildings that have consistently lower indoor temperatures in summer.
