Thermal factor is one of the main factors of the green building concept. The purpose of this research is to test building performance through design aspect that influences thermal comfort, the design aspects include: orientation, building type, and position of the flat. Method used in this research is covariance analysis, testing the influence of factor variable toward respond variable (indoor temperature) with taking outdoor temperature as concomitant variable. The cases tested on this research are Cigugur Tengah, Industri Dalam, and Sarijadi flats. Result of covariance analysis shows that the building orientation factor variable is most influentially variable toward thermal comfort, compared with building type factor variable; even the unit position factor variable has no significant influence toward thermal comfort.
