Abstract


In order to maintain an appropriate Indoor thermal comfort, the air needs to be conditioned using any means to circulate and discharge heat out from the room. However, with world descending into a global energy crisis and rising of global temperature, air conditioning approach need to be reconsidered as it’s used big amount of energy. An Earth to Air Heat Exchanger (EAHX) known as passive cooling is a system or technique to cool a building with small or almost zero energy consumption.  The main objective of this research is to analyses the passive cooling technique for small room by reducing indoor temperature of the room. Galvanized Iron Steel was used as EAHX pipe. It is hypotheses that the temperature difference depends on the thermal conductivity and depth of buried EAHX pipe. Two different setups of pipe were applied. Pipe A was setup without water proof barrier while pipe B consists of water proof barrier. It was found that the pipe B reached the highest temperature difference about 6.42°C
