Energy saving has been a global concern since the last few years. Due to the massive growth of population in Saudi Arabia and its extremely hot climate, electricity consumption, and costs are expected to increase every year. This work presents an intelligent and efficient technology to create a balance between the need of energy consumption minimization and standards regarding the comfort of people in Saudi Arabia. Thermal Modelling and Optimization of Cooling Systems have been considered to generate the outcomes of study. The sample size comprised of 10 houses, which have been selected randomly from Royal Commission for Yanbu province. It has been revealed through testing that there is a reduction by 20% in cooling consumption. This reduction reflects in 31% reduction in expected cooling costs without affecting the comfort of householders.
