The tropical climate in Malaysia that is hot and humid with average temperatures between 23.7oC to 31.3oC throughout a day with the highest maximum recorded as 36.9oC and the average relative humidity between 67% to 95% and this may have an adverse impact on occupant comfort indoor. With this kind of climate thermal comfort can become a problem to occupants of many residential buildings especially when they are not equipped with airconditioning system. With the cost living in the city increased higher, the needs to promote the energy saving are needed. This paper presents outcomes of an ongoing research work to investigate thermal comfort by using rainwater harvesting system on terraced houses. Temperature data as an ongoing research through the month and to be compare with cooling load temperature difference (CLTD) method that normally practice inthe design of the air conditioning system for a certain building. The data will be compared to prove the rainwater harvesting system cannot be neglected or overseeing that can help in reducing temperature closed to thermal comfort on the terraced houses.
