The use of refrigerator and air conditioner in human life causes increase in use of hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon each year. Hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon are hazardous subtances that can make a hole in ozone that cause increase in receive of ultraviolet on earth, that will give negative impact on human health. Thermoelectric refrigeration as a solid state heat pump is a safe solution to subtitute the used of hidrocarbons and fluorocarbons based refrigerator and air conditioner. The experiment is conducted to test a thermoelectric based refrigeration system which uses water as a working fluid. The result shows that refrigeration system will be optimum at 6V and 2.24A of electricity consumption, and 0.5 and 1 litre/minute of water flowrate. While Coefficient of Performance (COP) of the system is 0.86.
