Physical Factors in the Indoor Environment

This chapter presents a discussion of physical factors in the nonindustrial indoor environment that affect human health, comfort, productivity, and well-being.

While indoor air quality (IAQ) can affect human health, comfort and well-being, other indoor environmental factors may cause adverse reactions. Physical factors can have a direct impact on building occupants; they may interact with indoor air contaminants, or they may alter the body's response to indoor air pollutants. The body responds to all of the factors in the environment to which it is exposed.
