Abstract

We conducted a summer thermal environment test on a traditional folk house and a modern folk house in Banliang Village, south of Hunan. The result shows that the indoor temperature of the traditional folk house is 3℃ lower than that of the modern folk house. The temperature of the outdoor spaces, transitional spaces and bedrooms shows an obvious gradient descent. In the case that the temperature outside the wall is the same, the temperature of the inside surface of the traditional folk house’s wall is 5℃ lower than that of the modern folk house. The result indicates that the transition space of the traditional folk house is conducive to lowering the indoor temperature of the living space in summer. The thick black brick wall’s insulation performance is stronger than the hollow brick wall of the modern folk house. And the southward opening of the house is conducive to enhancing the indoor natural ventilation. The ecological experience of traditional folk houses is worth learning for modern folk houses.
