Recent studies on air conditioning have been constructed on how to improve the energy saving and comfort of ambient temperature. Existing air conditioners are capable of determining temperature of environment through the temperature sensors on them. It is not possible to obtain homogeneous temperature all over the area with a single point measurement. In this study, the ambient temperature was measured using the temperature measurement modules installed at different places in the room. To do this, a PIC18F452 was used as a main controller. This microcontroller communicates with the other remote temperature measurement modules in radio frequency (RF) mode. The developed control system has the features such as LCD display, programmability, sleeping and automatic operation mode, three steps fan speed control, adjustable fan angle, and remote control with LCD display.
