    Abstract :

    Power consumption is a major concern in Air Conditioner. The objective of this research paper is to study the performance enhancement of air conditioner using earth air tunnel heat exchanger. The concept of experimentally study of air conditioner using earth air tunnel heat exchanger (EATHE) can be done to evaluate the performance of system. Soil temperature, at a depth of about 10 feet or more, stays fairly constant throughout the year, and is approximately equal to the average annual ambient air temperature. The ground can, therefore, be used as a heat sink for cooling in the summer and as a heat source for heating in the winter. A simple method of using this concept is to pass air through an underground air tunnel. The air thus cooled or heated can be used directly for the conditioned space or indirectly with air conditioners or heat pumps. The EATHE’s are considered as one of the most passive system due to its ability to provide both the effects; heating in cold months and cooling during warm months. This paper reviews on the performance enhancement of air conditioner using earth air tunnel heat exchanger system.
