This dataset is a supplement to the publication in the 2016 Applied Energy conference in Beijing, China. The data reveals that the adaptive comfort temperature in indoors in buildings isincreased when indoor and outdoor temperatures increased. The neutral comfort temperature will change from around 24C to 26C from present day to 2080s for occupants in London. When people get used to the increasing high temperatures in future, the most unstable factor which will severely harm occupant health is the more and more frequent sudden peaks of high temperatures.
