his paper highlights the importance of environmental protection regarding the reduction of energy consumption while keeping the living standard. In low energy houses, up to 80 % of the total heat is consumed for the heating of fresh air for a comfortable environment. The aim of this article is to examine the effect of temperature, humidity, air velocity and concentration of carbon dioxide in regard to the human behaviour in indoor environment with natural ventilation, i.e. without a ventilation device, where ventilation is forced or an air conditioning.
