Nowadays the capillary plane HVAC terminal system as an advanced terminal air conditioning system is being widely used. It has many advantages such as thermal comfort, energy conservation and saving indoor space etc. In this paper, with the example of a typical residential room where the capillary plane HVAC terminal system is installed, the indoor thermal environment is simulated and the influence of different capillary mat placement modes is analyzed, three operating modes in summer and winter are simulated by using the method of CFD, and the corresponding temperature fields are presented. Based on the simulation results, the temperature fields are appraised from the view of thermal comfort. These will be good references to the design and application of the capillary plane HVAC terminal system.
