This article is part of a research in progress about comparative study methods for the Brazilian reality using among many other authors, Givoni (1969), Voght and Miller-Chagas (1970), Fanger-ISO(1970), ASHRAE (55-1992), Mahoney (1971), Humphreys (1978) and Olgyay (1962) methods. This research presents the principal concept to be evaluated by the Universal Fuzzy Controlled aiming to establish a reference to determine a possible interference of the acclimatization factor to determine thermal comfort. An experimental evaluation method was elaborated through a questionnaire applied to the population of students in classroom, monitoring the environmental variables inside and outside the classroom during the years 2004 and 2005. It shows their particularities for the altitude tropical climate of the city of So Paulo - Brazil. This article describes interference of mass advance at the responses of students in classroom comparing to internal and external environment variables. The data was gotten in parallel with classroom in full activity.
