Maintaining a good thermal comfort is an important issue for human being. Discomfort feeling will happen if the temperature is too hot or too cold. Nowadays, moving from one place to another by using car as the mode of transportation is human daily basis. When the car that is parked under direct sunlight, the heat from the sunlight is trapped inside the car. The situation happens when the solar radiation passes through the glass but cannot escape from it and trapped inside the car. The high temperature that is trapped inside the car could cause discomfort when the driver or passenger enters the car. Besides that, the damage of the car cabinet is also affected by the high temperature. The purpose of this study is to design, monitor and install hydronic radiant cooling system, which can be relied on to remove the excessive heat trapped inside the car interior by the method of convection heat transfer. The design is based on the temperature inside the car that is measured using thermocouples. The temperature inside the car interior with completely closed ventilations could increase up to 60.85⁰C. Experimental work is carried to compare the temperature before and after the installation and implementation of the hydronic radiant cooling system. An average reduction of 11.48 ⁰C is recorded after hydronic radiant cooling system is installed. The additional benefit other than to provide comfort, the installation of the system inside the car when it is parked under the direct sun light could also to avoid damage of the car cabinet, especially the rubber parts. This can lead to a better indoor air quality inside the car as trapped heat could cause the emission of the volatile organic compound gases from the car cabinet.
