Penned collaboratively by Łukasz J. Orman, Grzegorz Majewski, Norbert Radek, and Jacek Pietraszek, this illuminating article found its place within MDPI’s Energies Journal on September 7, 2023. The article’s focal point revolves around an incisive exploration of thermal comfort in both intelligent and conventional buildings situated within the confines of Poland. This investigative journey drew upon a wealth of data concerning air and globe temperatures, alongside relative humidity figures. A comprehensive perspective was further attained through surveys conducted among 1778 participants. The central revelation gleaned from this study resonates: within the realm of thermal comfort, intelligent buildings ascend to a higher echelon when juxtaposed against their traditional counterparts, serving as a testament to their capacity for fostering superior levels of comfort.
