Environmental conditions outside the building more or less affect the thermal conditions inside the building. In Bandar Lampung, the average residential building must use a fan or air conditioner to achieve thermal comfort for its users. However, there is no research that examines the thermal conditions in residential homes in Bandar Lampung. Therefore, this research is important to do. The building under study is located on Jl. Hero, Mr. Cempaka No. 8, RT. 027 Environment III, Ex. Surabaya, Bandar Lampung City and is a one-story residential building. The method used to conduct this research is descriptive. While the data collection technique is done by direct measurement. The tools used to measure thermal are a hygrometer, thermometer and anemometer.
