Malaysian Government takes an initiative to provide low-cost housing areas to accommodate the rapid growth population in the urban area for the low-income people. Due to the high demand of the low-cost house, the developers start taking advantages. The architecture design of the low-cost houses was lack of consideration of indoor climate and environment of the house which resulting the discomfort environment inside the house. Therefore the occupant of the house take action by renovated their house to adapt with the condition to fulfill their needed thermal comfort. For this study, three low-cost houses were selected with different building orientation at Bandar Baru Samariang. Several experimental works were conducted to study thermal comfort inside the house. Then data were analyzed using Predict Mean Vote (PMV) and Predicted Percentage of Dissatisfied (PPD). From the data analysis, it indicated that the renovated houses did not achieve thermal comfort required. To ensure the suitable design of the house several suggestions has been stated such as build asbestos ceiling, using casement window and build overhang roof to shade the wall that exposed to sun radiation.
