Background: Everyone in the world started using their home air conditioners as a result of the escalating global warming circumstances. However, the power output of the power plants is consistent throughout the day, therefore it cannot satisfy this enormous demand.

Objectives: After several hours of research on conventional air conditioning systems, engineers created a new idea for an Earth to Air Heat Exchanging System that may be used for passive cooling of buildings.

Methods: The changeable properties of a pipe include its buried depth, cross section, length, design, number, and inlet and outflow cross sections. Thermal inertia, chimney wall insulation, input and output parts and positions, direction, height, and upper and lower chimney components. The two identical, well-insulated structures are simulated numerically over the summer. The first building serves as a model because it has the mentioned passive cooling system, whereas the second has no passive elements.

Conclusions: The outcomes confirmed about Reviewing numerical, experimental, parametric, and economic studies of an earth-to-air heat exchanger with an emphasis on its application in semi-arid and arid climates is the topic of the current study.
