Abstract: Phase change materials (PCMs) offer great potential as a latent heat energy storage technique to provide energy efficient systems in new and existing residential buildings. There are large numbers of PCMs that melt and solidify at a wide range of temperatures, making them attractive in a number of applications Low thermal conductivity of the walls and roof reduces the heat gain at a steady state condition. . Lauric acid (C12H24O2) as a phase change material (PCM) for a room was proposed in this paper to control the indoor air temperature for a better thermal comfort for human beings. Building concrete roof 0.7 × 0.7 m mixed with C12H24O2 (PCM) considered for analysis. A detailed thermal performance was carried by experimental study. The Results showed that this type of PCM room can decrease the indoor air temperature fluctuation by a maximum of 5◦C.
