Seasonal Temperature/Humidity Guidelines

ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers) has conducted studies that test the comfort level of lightly clothed adults engaged in sedentary activities at various temperature and humidity levels. Their research, published in ASHRAE Standard #55, has shown that the average comfort level range is from 72–79°F, with relative humidity between 20 and 70 percent.

Wright State University's Physical Plant department has established the following guidelines for temperature and humidity parameters for classrooms and offices in the buildings on Wright State's campus:

Fall/Winter

  • Minimum relative humidity: 20 percent
  • Acceptable room temperature range: 69–75°F

Spring/Summer

  • Acceptable relative humidity range: 20–70 percent
  • Acceptable room temperature range: 72–77°F
