Air Conditioning and temperature control is a big element in producing a pleasant environment in an enclosure building. That is why people always keep the temperature control and air conditioning matters in high priorities. Here in Malaysia where the climatic condition is occasionally hot and wet, the air conditioning matters always had been a critical factor to a building owner. In small houses or room people tend to have fans or rather smaller unit of air condition to coolant the environment but what it takes to turn down the heat in a 5000square meters area? Bigger unit or bigger system are needed in order to supply cool air to those massive area and one of the favorite system that had been use massively in Malaysia and all over the world is the Chiller System. Chiller System is a centralized air conditioning system that consists of a compressor, condenser and evaporator that generates the whole system with the help of other supporting element such as cooling tower, air handling unit and metering device to produce cool air to coolant a big enclosure area. When the system is that big, we might think of the kind of money that we could spend in order to keep the system in a good shape and working accordingly to our needs. This is why it is so important to study weather the system is such cost friendly or effective compared to other type of air conditioning system that we have in Malaysia such as the split unit system or others. And the main goal of this study is to determine weather the system is cost effective enough to use in all area of elements such as price of the system, maintenance cost, and powering cost and so on and so forth.
