The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of thermal satisfaction improvements on productivity by introducing cooling methods. A subjective experiment was conducted in a climate chamber conditioned at 25.5°C and 28.5°C. Lighter business wear corresponding to COOLBIZ and three additional individual cooling methods were introduced in the conditions at 28.5°C. Thermal sensation was lowered, thermal satisfaction was improved and fatigue after tasks was decreased, with higher degree of freedom in the selection of individual control of thermal environment. There is a possibility that performance was improved and fatigue was lowered by improving thermal satisfaction of occupants by introducing simple individual cooling methods, even under raised present cooling temperature.
