In the 21<sup>st</sup> century, global warming has become a very serious ecological problem. It is necessary to prevent global warming from increasing the greenhouse effect gas such as carbon dioxide. A new energy saving technique using mechanical pump system is proposed as a solution to this problem. The pump carrying the water, which is the heat source, for the air conditioner has an effect on energy saving by using effective automatic control. Since there is a lack of knowledge related to mechanical pump, effective automatic control systems combined with some pumps are implemented only in a few buildings. In this paper, the machine characteristics of a mechanical pump and a system design combined with some pumps are applied to a decrease in energy consumption. Based on the characteristics of the pump, the automatic control techniques are constant discharged pressure control technique, estimated end pressure control technique and real end pressure control technique. In this paper, the estimated end pressure control technique is recommended as a result of testing the automatic control system combined with the pumps. Also, improvement in conditions of the pump is proposed as a new energy saving technique.
