Abstract: The temperature of atmosphere fluctuating continuously because the changing of environment, due to global warming effect that is uncomfortable for human beings. For comfort zone of human being air conditioning is use in summer season and heater is use in winter season. There for air conditioning and heater required high grade energy as well as high maintenance cost. Now replacing these devices by Earth tube heat exchanger. Earth tube heat exchanger is a device which is producing cooling effects in summer season and heating effects in winter season by passing the ambient air through the pipes inside the ground or soil as a source or sink of heat. According to previous research (IJERTCONV5IS02011) the effect of temperature at a certain depth about 2 m to 5 m remain nearly same throughout the whole year. The temperature inside the earth surface is greater than the atmospheric temperature in winter and less than the summer. Till date many researchers have done extensive research on Earth tube heat exchanger. The present study on this paper, focus on variation of temperature in buried pipes and enhance the various parameters of Earth tube heat exchanger that is reduced the cost and energy consumption for same desired effect. And also replace the other pipe with PVC pipe at 1524mm (6 inches) internal diameter as a varying length and 250-watt blower is use to flow the air at 2-5 m/s.
