This paper investigates the thermal storage performance of the office building which has adopted an air conditioning system with its slab structure as a regenerator. Four cases of the thermal storage performance experiment were conducted. Room air temperatures, floor slab temperatures, temperatures around the air conditioning unit were logged and analyzed. The load handling capacity of the air conditioning unit and the amount of heat stored in the slab were decided from those experiments. Several efficiencies were investigated to evaluate the performance of the thermal storage. The results concluded that the slab as a regenerator is very effective in cutting down peak loads of the office building.
