Ground-source or geothermal exchange air conditioning are a highly efficient, renewable energy technology for space cooling. This technology relies on the fact that, at depth, the earth has a relatively constant temperature. Although this technology is widely applied in the seasonal countries such as America and Europe, but it is not so well known in a hot and humid country like Malaysia. The yearlong hot climate does not requires us to have extra heating but is really in need of a more efficient way of cooling our homes. Based on countless research done on ground exchange heat pump, it is in theory that with the application of Ground Exchange Air Conditioning (GEAC), we are able to have the same amount of cooling but with smaller energy consumption than those air conditioner without it. Therefore in this project, the author will embark on a journey to design and a GEAC system that is optimized to be used in a hot and humid country like Malaysia. This report will utilized the steps in engineering design as well as system engineering design in order to achieve the objectives of this project.
