Indoor temperature is one of the fundamental characteristics of the indoor environment. It
can be controlled with a degree of accuracy dependent on the building and its HVAC
system. The indoor temperature affects several human responses, including thermal
comfort, perceived air quality, sick building syndrome symptoms and performance at work.
In this study, we focused on the effects of temperature on performance at office work. . We
included those studies that had used objective indicators of performance that are likely to
be relevant in office type work, such as text processing, simple calculations (addition,
multiplication), length of telephone customer service time, and total handling time per
customer for call-center workers. We excluded data from studies of industrial work
performance. We calculated from all studies the percentage of performance change per
degree increase in temperature, and statistically analyzed measured work performance with
temperature. The results show that performance increases with temperature up to 21-22 oC,
and decreases with temperature above 23-24 oC. The highest productivity is at temperature
of around 22 oC
. For example, at the temperature of 30 oC the performance is only 91.1% of
the maximum i.e. the reduction in performance is 8.9%
