Abstract: Climate change is the major environmental challenge within the 21st century. The use of energy, primarily produced through the burning of fossil fuels, is arguably one of the main causes of climate change (United States Department of State, 2010). One ways in fighting off the climate change is to reduce the overall energy usage of each nation.According to Energy Information Administration (2003), HVAC system is the one that consumed the most energy within a school building. Therefore, it is just logical to target HVAC system within our EC (Energy Conservation) strategies. Objective and subjective measurement were carried out on selected spaces within the subject building. The objective parameters to be measured include operative temperature, relative humidity, Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC), particulate matter, air velocity, CO2 concentration, CO concentration and total mould and bacterial counts. For subjective data, questionnaire is conducted towards the building occupants. The operative temperature within the seminar room is found to fail to meet the minimum threshold level during the experiment. On average, the operative temperature of the seminar room is simply below recommended operative temperature set by SS554:2009. This result is further supported by the results from the questionnaire where most respondent felt that the seminar room is too cold. The air velocity also fails to meet the recommended threshold. On another note, there is an improvement on the energy savings over the period of September 2013 to December 2013. In conclusion, the subject building is able to achieve the satisfying Indoor Air Quality and energy savings at the same time. Recommendations to further improve the Indoor Air Quality have also been made.
