This paper is about an experimental study on the effectiveness of using heat emitted from a split-type residential air conditioner (RAC) for clothes drying in residential buildings. This work will focus on utilizing waste-heat from air condition to dry the clothes. In this work a new cabinet for the clothes dryer had been designed and some of the important formula for drying process had been included. This experiment was done by referring to drying clothes activity and with this project it is hoped that the drying activity can be done at anytime without any problem. The experiment was done by an actual prototype that was built with some properties like acrylic, aluminum and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The material was selected because the properties are suitable for this process. 5 pairs of jeans trouser had been used as the specimen to shown the capability of the drying process with heat emitted from the air conditioning despite of its high level of moisture content after washing process. With all the precautions and preparation, an efficient dryer cabinet was fabricated and proposed for domestic use. It is hoped that with this innovation, clothes drying will be easier and economical no matter what the weather or conditions are.
