Indonesia is one of the countries affected by climate change. One of the most significant effects that happen in the environment is global warming, which causes the air temperature to rise. Climatic conditions will directly affect the human body since the air temperature influences the human body. Indonesia is also one of the countries facing an energy crisis. Efforts are certainly needed to keep the thermal comfort inside the building within the tolerable level, while on the other hand minimizing the use of energy for air conditioning. One way is by optimizing the building envelope materials to reduce the room temperature. This method is based on the fact that conductivity (other than convection and radiation) of building materials greatly influences heat transfer, especially through the building walls. This study aims to discover the thermal performance of clay bricks, lime bricks, and ventilation blocks as wall construction. The study used qualitative and quantitative methods, aided with field measurements. The conclusion is made based on the comparison result of the best temperature reduction between clay bricks, lime bricks, and ventilation blocks.
