This article presents the optimal system to contribute to the thermal comfort in social housing built in a warm climate regime in Ecuador, taking as a case study the city of Azogues, through the comparative analysis of scientific information of two systems of architectural enclosure, to maintain the thermal balance inside the building; because the houses that are built in extreme climates are characterized by being of social interest and are inhabited with profound problems of thermal comfort. The methodology used for the analysis of the content of the research is qualitative. The main theoretical-methodological contribution of the research lies in the contribution to the fulfillment of an important aspect of public policy in a specific area of the country. Based on this, it could be extrapolated to other cities with social interest housing.
