YUNUS DEMİRTAŞ, H. BULUT, S. DEMİRTAŞ
Earth - Air Heat Exchanger (EAHX) systems can be used in many applications in terms of energy efficiency. EAHX are systems that are used for cooling the air in summer and heating in winter by using the soil energy. The basis of the concept of energy efficiency is generating more energy with less use of primary resources and less cost. Experimental studies of heating and cooling applications showed that the EAHX systems have energy saving potential. In addition to this, it was also observed that EAHX systems were used in greenhouse studies, surface cooling of the PV panel, zero energy buildings and other applications. Also in this study, the researches on the literature of different applications of EAHX systems were examined in terms of energy efficiency. As a result, it was seen that EAHX systems reduce energy costs and decrease environmental problems which is one of the most important problems of today.
