In this study, experiments were carried out on working at desks in the summer to clarify the relationship between temperature and air flow control, work efficiency psychology, and physiology. This was done by evaluating the air flow environment, work efficiency, psychology, and physiological volume by controlling the vertical temperature difference. The participants were young people in their 20s (five males and five females). As a result, it was confirmed that the environment and physiological affect intellectual productivity and work performance. Based on practicality it is predicted that the method of using air conditioning to advance automatic control over time progresses.
