Recently, the effects of the indoor thermal environment on blood pressure have attracted attention. However, these effects have not been studied in relation to personal factors, particularly individual attributes and lifestyle. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to analyze the relation between indoor temperature and blood pressure while taking into account personal factors. Field surveys on home blood pressure, indoor temperature, and personal factors were conducted in winter 2012 and 2013. Controlling for personal factors, systolic blood pressure increased by 4.3 mmHg per 10 °C decrease in indoor air temperature. Also, a 1 °C decrease in indoor air temperature increased 1.12-fold the likelihood of a reading above 135 mmHg (the standard value of systolic blood pressure at home). Furthermore, the effect of indoor air temperature was stronger in residents with more severe arteriosclerosis. Therefore, residents at high risk of cardiovascular events should keep the indoor thermal environment within an appropriate range.
