Longstanding flaw in sensor readings could lead to heating and cooling design errors

(Princeton University, Engineering School) Standard comfort measurements used to design heating and cooling systems share a common flaw, according to new research. The researchers said the error was caused by the standard instrument used to measure thermal effects of radiant heating and cooling. The instrument and associated formulas used to calculate comfort based on the sensor's readings do not properly account for air flow called free convection. The failure led to temperature errors of over two degrees Celsius.
