Ship indoor environments are related with comfort conditions and health risk problems. As a consequence, to obtain an adequate heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, a redesign of the engine control room must be made. To answer this problem, an analysis of real thermal comfort conditions was carried out and a new air conditioning procedure is proposed. From the obtained results it can be concluded that comfort conditions in the bridge and dining room are close to neutral, while the most extreme conditions have been found in the engine room.
