Abstract [en]

Many church buildings in Sweden have problems with rising heating costs combined with deterioration of inventories as a consequence of an inappropriate indoor climate. Gotland University has in collaboration with Gotland's churches installed a new radiant heating system for churches. The developed system has floor heating and bench heating pads combined with radiant heaters hanging from above the bench rows. These new installations have now been evaluated with respect to thermal climate comfort. The results show that the clothing of course plays an important role even with help radiant heaters and bench heat pads. Persons on both sides of the instrument as well as the height of the heaters do seem to play a smaller role in this investigation. An important parameter to check is the risk for drought that clearly is dependent on of the construction of the church benches.
