- Thermal comfort field investigation of 1944 subjects were conducted.
- High humidity does not have too much influence on body comfort of tropical island residents.
- The thermal neutral temperature of tropical island residents is calculated as 26.1 Â°C.
The unique geographical location of Hainan makes its climate characteristics different from inland areas in China. The thermal comfort of Hainan also owes its uniqueness to its tropical island climate. In the past decades, there have been very few studies on thermal comfort of the residents in tropical island areas in China. A thermal environment test for different types of buildings in Hainan and a thermal comfort field investigation of 1944 subjects were conducted over a period of about two months. The results of the survey data show that a high humidity environment did not have a significant impact on human comfort. The neutral temperature for the residents in tropical island areas was 26.1Â Â°C, and the acceptable temperature range of thermal comfort was from 23.1Â Â°C to 29.1Â Â°C. Residents living in tropical island areas showed higher heat resistance capacity, but lower cold tolerance than predicted. The neutral temperature for females (26.3Â Â°C) was higher than for males (25.8Â Â°C). Additionally, females were more sensitive to air temperature than males. The research conclusions can play a guiding role in the thermal environment design of green buildings in Hainan Province.
