In order to confirm the effectiveness of the indoor climate control system adopted in the experimental house, the indoor climate in summer was evaluated for the experimental house and two other buildings in Nanning city and a comparison was made. Two vernacular buildings which have natural indoor and semi-outdoor cooling systems were selected for the study The majority of the measurements were taken using the spherical thermography system. The results showed that the quality of the indoor thermal environment of each building is approximately the same. However, the experimental house can also provide hot water and winter heating by using solar energy This provides an argument for installing the technologies used in the experimental house in buildings in semi-tropic regions such as Nanning city
