Abstract: The heating, ventilation and cooling loads of typical commercial office space can range between 30-50% of the total energy load of the building. However, this figure is highly variable due to the high variability in building design, the climate in which they are built and their quality. Typically, in South Africa the cooling load is the greatest and the reduction of this load should be one of the first targets when considering an energy-efficient building design. This chapter provides an overview on temperature control systems that can be implemented in buildings
