Abstract
This study is about investigating the preferred temperature versus the perceived neutral temperature in a typical tropical humid climate. The main aim of this research is to explore the discrepancy and to quantify the difference of subjects’ votes using ASHRAE scale. A field study was carried out in the Faculty of Engineering at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah in air-conditioned classrooms. The results revealed that the students preferred cooler temperature within the range under investigation. However, some statistical issues were observed in the analyzed data. Therefore, a new procedure was designed to assess the validity of the results in each classroom. When considering all the valid votes; the students’ preferred feeling slightly cool under neutrality.
