In this work, we are study the effect of air conditioning when it is coupled with a cooling/heating floor; on the air room temperature and on the energy consumption. For this we have established the energy balance of the experimental chamber. This will allow us to determine the heat exchange in the room in order to evaluate the heat loss on the ceiling and on the floor. The quantity of energy supply by the hydraulic modules 1 and 2 respectively to the ceiling and the floor is determined. We also calculated the quantity of energy transferred to the air room through the ceiling and the floor with and without the presence of air conditioning.
