Thermal comfort relates to a condition of mind which expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment. In relation to Recreation and Health: older adults capacity to regulate body temperature decreases as they age and thus with lower metabolic rate they need higher temperatures to feel comfortable. To maintain optimal thermal comfort of residents many health care facilities provide state-of-the-art air conditioning systems to offer the best possible indoor climate.
