Abstract

The importance of Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) - Thermal Comfort, Acoustic Comfort, and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) - is relevant since the first function of a building is to provide a comfortable and healthy living environment. However, most of the existing buildings were built before the introduction of regulations and certification schemes that include the IEQ. For this reason, a practical framework to assess the IEQ by means of measurements has been developed. The outcome can be used to support the renovation project, thus helping to improve the IEQ. This paper presents the application of a non-intrusive and scalable IoT sensing solution for continuous IEQ measurement in occupied buildings during the renovation process. Results show the IEQ assessment in a residential building in Warmond, the Netherlands.
