LinkedIn Article: Ceiling fans can increase thermal comfort

In May 2018, SinBerBEST 2 Theme Lead, Professor Stefano Schiavon, published a LinkedIn article sharing recent research findings of using ceiling fans in a Singapore office building. In this study, SinBerBEST researcher, Aleksandra Lipczynska, Prof. Schiavon, and Center for Built Environment Research Specialist, Lindsay Graham, evaluated how increased room temperatures and air movement impacted the white-collar workers’ thermal comfort and their self-reported productivity. In fact, they successfully demonstrated that it is possible to increase a room’s set-point, enhance occupants’ thermal satisfaction, and gain energy savings in a real-life commercial environment.
