Research on a new residential phase-change material (PCM) floor heating system is conducted. 1. Using folded sheet metal, a floor heating system allows easy placement of P C M without making major changes to the general structure of wooden houses. 2. A floor model consisting of P C M and a water pack layer is designed. Additionally, case studies are conducted to confirm the application of physically reasonable trends. 3. Optimization of this system is defined, and a diagram was developed to help determine the P C M specification (phase change temperature and thickness) to realize optimization.
