Thermal environmental rating is the process by which the consequences of the implementation, expansion, modification or removal of activities and elements within the housing case study, to try and determine the corrective or precautionary measures necessary to prevent or evaluated compensate possible thermal effects on the spaces. Where it will argue that urban climatology and establish constructive system hygrothermal environment. It observes and monitors the thermal and values your swing, setpoint set for winter and summer.
Based on the results of the annual performance average monthly temperature and relative humidity as well as strategies of adaptability and hygrothermal rating is determined. The experimental work is methodologically applied research, where different methods rely on various types as the documentary field and descriptive. The objective of this research is to determine the thermal environmental qualification only temperature and relative humidity inside the common housing in Tampico, Mexico.
