The data within this dataset was collected from 43 homes, all in Bath, UK, with at least one occupant aged 65 or over. Sensors were placed in the living rooms and bedrooms of the participating homes to measure temperature at 90-minute intervals throughout the phases of the project. There were four phases in total: November 2016 – March 2017; June 2017 – September 2017; November 2017 – March 2018; June 2018 – September 2018. Corresponding questionnaires were completed on a monthly basis throughout the phases of the project, gathering data about thermal comfort and health. Within this dataset the measured internal temperatures, participant self-reported thermal comfort and health problems are contained in either Excel or CSV files.
