The thermal comfort in buildings is one of the most characteristic and important aim that architecture must provide, as the typical way to achieve the thermal comfort in buildings is the intensive use of energy consumed, but this is of course not an ideal approach because it leads to waste of energy. High consumption rates of electric energy and non-renewable energies are among the most serious problems facing Egypt and the whole world at the present time, as the deficit is increasing continuously.

After analyzing and updating the international, local examples, studies and measurements that were developed by specialists in this field, we found that under the great development in methods of urban planning and design and access to finishing materials and thermal insulation of buildings has become a significant impact in the reduction of 40-50% of the total energy used in buildings of mechanical machines and reduce the total energy consumption.
