This study investigates the effects of using phase-changing material (PCM) in-wall blocks to save energy in buildings. Firstly, the properties of wall blocks and phase-changing materials are discussed. Then, studies examining the effect of using phase-changing materials in wall blocks on energy-saving were compiled. At the end of the study, it has been reached that the use of phase-changing material, which is an innovative material in wall blocks, provides energy savings up to 80%.
