Abstract

Terrace house is the most common house type of housing in Malaysia. However, it does not fully cater as a shelter in Malaysia’s hot and humid climate as studies have shown that the inside temperature of a terrace house is much higher than the ambient temperature. Since terrace house receive most heat from the roof, this paper presents the importance of installing roof thermal insulation in terrace housing and the current practice in Malaysia. Further study on this project is carried out through the social survey of the practice and preferences among terrace housing occupants in Malaysia.
