Air conditioning systems constitute one kind of essential utility at a building. They still could be decreased its electrical cost consumption by way of insistent to continue the performance of its room air cooler system. The achievement of air conditioning system mentioned is very determined by the airflow pattern inner the room. Based on the airflow pattern which is raised furthermore it will be deliberated the cooling load which is determine cooling electricity costs. Construction elevation consideration will be carried out in the framework to obtain the difference of thermal condition each building level. The parameter mentioned is interesting to analyses due to the effect of sun heat will very dependent to the constructions elevation. 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 several level of construction elevation. 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 the thermal condition and cooling load of local air conditioning system in the apartment building unit within atypical floors.
