In this research, an evaluation method of health performance of detached house utilizing CASBEE Housing Health Checklist is proposed. Score on the warmth in CASBEE Housing Health Checklist is calculated from the temperatures that are simulated in the previous case study using a heat load simulation. The method to calculate the score from temperatures is based on other studies about thermal sensation, health, dwelling performance and so on. Using this score on the warmth, it is possible to predict the crisis rate of catching a cold in winter.
