Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleCommunication


Most non-residential buildings that were built or retrofitted in the last 20 years use a Building Automation System (BAS). BASs are installed to efficiently operating buildings and reducing their energy usage and operating costs. At the same time BASs allow to tightly control the indoor climate in line with requirements as defined in guidelines, standards and building decrees. But this tight control does not necessarily lead to higher occupant satisfaction or lower complaint rates.
