The Air Source Air Conditioning Water Heater (ASACWH) performance as an energy source to heat water in the tank using dummy condenser type of trombone coil with different diameter and pipe length without hot water circulation has been investigated. The diameter and length of the dummy condenser pipe are intensely affected by ACWH performance. In this study, cooling capacity, Coefficient of Performance (COP), compressor power and room temperature were evaluated in three types of trombone coil (6.4 mm coil diameter with a length of 7.9 m, 6.4 mm coil diameter with a length of 5.3 m, and 9.5 mm coil diameter with a length of 5.3 m) with different cooling load variation. This study used cooling load with a variation of 0 W, 1000 W, 2000 W, and 3000 W without hot water circulation in the simulation room. It was found that the ASACWH using a pipe with a coil diameter of 6.4 mm and length of 7.9 m performed the highest cooling capacity and COP, and produced more comfortable room temperature than the other two pipes. The results indicated that when the cooling load icreased from 0 W to 3000 W, the compressor power increased by 11.3%, 6.3%, and 9.3%, using the 6.4 mm coil diameter with 7.9 m length, 6.4mm diameter of the coil with 5.3m length and 9.5mm coil diameter with 5.3m length, respectively.
