Abstract. The article presents the perception of thermal comfort in two buildings, intelligent and traditional. 32 people aged 18 to 22 and one women aged 52 participated in the study. Two indicators were analyzed, PMV (Predicted Mean Vote) and PPD (Predicted Percentage of Dissatisfied). The analysis consisted in comparing the actual feelings of the respondents with the results based on Fanger’s model. The assessment of air humidity and thermal preferences are also shown.
