Air conditioning systems constitute one kind of essential utility at a building. Electricity energy consumption for room cooler is high sufficient in fact it could attain more than half practically of electrical feeding total in the building. Air conditioning system at a room is still could be decreased its electrical cost consumption by way of insistent to continue the performance of its room air cooler. The achievement of air conditioning system mentioned is very determined to the airflow pattern inner the room which is moreover will establish air temperature, velocity, turbulence and contamination degree which is occurred inside the room. Based on the airflow pattern which is raised furthermore it will be deliberated the energy consumption which is required by the air conditioning system. Construction orientation consideration will be carried out in the framework to obtain the air conditioning system within the most economical of energy consumption which is influential to the electrical spending cost. The parameter mentioned is interesting to analyses due to the effect of sun heat will very dependent to the constructions orientation. Methodology which is to be used remains within practice the numeric simulation. The measuring of air temperature directly by means of censors also implemented within eight direction of construction orientation. The outcome of air temperature measurement will be used as the input value to the numeric simulation execution in the apartment unit with the local air conditioning system. It is obtained energy consumption of local air conditioning system in the apartment building unit within 8 (eight) orientation tremendously whilst the research variable exploration.
