Abstract

In this paper, winter thermal environment of traditional timber house was measured before and after installing thermal insulation and floor heating. After this renovation, comfortable environment without vertical temperature difference had been secured even in early morning by the combination of floor heating and air conditioner. Therefore, this technique was considered to be an effective method to repair traditional timber houses in comparatively warm area.
