Building science usually includes the study of the indoor thermal environment, indoor light environment, indoor air quality, and building resource use, including energy and building material use. These zones are studied in terms of physical principles, relationship to building occupant health, comfort, and productivity, and how they are controlled by the building envelope and electrical and mechanical systems.

The applied purpose of building science is to provide predictive capability to optimize the building performance and sustainability of new and existing buildings, save energy, improve comfort and increase a home’s safety and durability.
