Abstract: Large differences exist between people with regard to preferred indoor environment. Individual control of the microenvironment at each workplace will make it possible for occupants to achieve preferred environment. In this study, the individual preference of local air movement was investigated under non-uniform microenvironment generated by personalized ventilation in conjunction with an under floor air distribution (UFAD) system. Human subjects were given the opportunity to choose the PV air flow between 5L/s and 10L/s as a means of control of his/her microenvironment. The results reveal large differences between the subjects with regard to the preferred air flow. It was found that the number of subjects who do not want to change the air movement increased after they had made a choice between the two air flow rate (5L/s and 10L/s).
