Abstract: Being the highest per capita consumer of electricity in the ASEAN region, Singaporeans have a significant role to play for the pressing energy concerns plaguing the world today. However, the solution to the issue of over-consumption is not to stop the consumption as a whole, but rather, to find an innovative solution that can balance our wants and needs with that of our environment’s. For tropical Singapore, the issue of cooling over- consumption is not that simple. The abundance of rainfall and extraordinary heat from being near the equator has made life without air-conditioning uncomfortable. With our growing economy, it does not come as a surprise that a significant portion of our working population spends a bulk of their time indoors. With the rise of Sick Building Syndrome as a major occupational hazard, air-conditioning in workplaces today is considered a necessity. This pushes the need to uncover the appropriate energy conservation strategy that can balance thermal comfort and indoor air quality while reducing energy consumption. A potential solution currently in the industry today is the Single Coil Twin Fan air- conditioning and air-distribution system. While reducing energy based on demand- ventilation and demand-cooling, the system is also able to provide for good indoor air quality that satisfy all requirements and codes of practice. Currently, only two prototypes are in place, and more is being done to spread awareness on its benefits. To attain this, experiments were conducted in one of the location as case-study to further support the benefits of the Single Coil Twin Fan system in terms of thermal comfort and superior indoor air performance. Additionally, new study regarding its filtration efficiency is also included.
