The office which can be heated from floor and/or radiator with solar energy and electric resistance from boiler, located in Gazi University Engineering Faculty. Thermal comfort analysis has been processed for an office employer by Fanger's method, radiator and floor heating was compared in this way, PMV (predicted mean vote) was shown in graphics. It has been determined that the floor heating system achieves more uniform thermal comfort conditions at various points in the heated place compared to the conditions obtained by the radiator heating system.
