This study is focused on the air conditioning of the building by the floor cooling system. The floor cooling system works on the same principle as the heating floor principle, but the cooling floor absorbs calories instead of emitting them. However as the air conditioning of the building, the water running from the distribution network must be at a temperature lower than of the air room temperature.  Experimental work in the laboratory of air conditioning technology at the technical University of Applied Sciences THM (Giessen) was carried out. The supply chilled water temperature and the return chilled water temperature of the hydraulic module 2, the air room temperature and the floor surface temperature is achieved. Besides, the out flow of hydraulic module 2 as well as the evolution of the air speed in the experimental chamber is pointed out.
