The application of Trombe wall in hot climate is problematic due to undesired heat gains and overheating resulting from the solar radiation incident on the building. Heating and cooling in commercial and residential buildings consume a lot of energy generated mostly from fossil fuels and steam plants. Studies and researches are made to come up with better solutions to save the cost of energy, and the new types of energy are called renewable energies like solar energy, wind energy and biomass energy. They are introduced to compensate the degradation of fossil fuels and reduce the electricity bills. Using the solar energy principles, Trombe wall- a passive solar system- is becoming widely used to establish heat energy transfer from the solar radiation to moderate the ambient temperature of a building. In this project the concept of Trombe wall will be studied and applied to suite the Malaysian climatic conditions. At the end of the project the effect of double glazing filled with argon was justified and found to reduce the temperature inside the building.
