Abstract. Currently, thermal comfort is becoming one of the most important aspects of human life. It is related to the time people spend in a closed environment. That is why it is so important to study this issue in terms of their actual thermal sensations, in order to better understand and clarify the scope of the relevant parameters, in particular by looking for such data for buildings built with a view to sustainable development. They are to meet all standards, ensuring thermal comfort for people staying in them. The article discusses thermal sensations, thermal preferences, and humidity for the group aged 21-25 in the winter in the Energis building belonging to the Kielce University of Technology. The methods that were used for this purpose include an environmental measure that takes microclimate parameters and questionnaires assessing the conditions in the room under study.
