There exist a wide number of works in the literature related to new systems devoted to manage thermal control in buildings. Commonly, their evaluation is performed by using simulation of users and environmental conditions. Thus, in this work we choose a successful thermal-comfort system, formerly evaluated with simulations, and evaluate it by using data from project ASHRAE RP-884, which provides logs of real data coming from different buildings, in a wide variety of climates, and occupied by people with different thermal preferences. From these logs, we propose a pre-processing and evaluation methodology in order to achieve more realistic evaluations.
