Abstract

An experimental test has been conducted to determine the effect of heat pipe heat exchangers for pre-cooling and re-heating performance of central air-conditioning systems in Hung Hom Sport Centre. The objectives of this research project are to investigate the energy recovery efficiency from using the heat pipe heat exchangers in air conditioning system. The annual energy saving by using the heat pipe heat exchangers. The effect of energy recovery efficiency is significant.
