In countries with subtropical climates, they need warmers in winter, therefore technology is needed to meet this. One of them is Ground Heat Exchanger, this tool is a heat exchanger by utilizing heat from the ground as a heating medium. This tool uses a coxial-double pipe system which consists of two pipes. More efficient performance improvements are needed. The study was conducted to increase the rate of heat transfer by adding a spiral fin without any increase in pressure drop. ANSYS Fluent software is used to simulate. Three spiral fin models were made with a pitch measuring 0.15 m perforated with variations in holes including n = 2, n = 3, and cross. Of the three variations of the model n = 2, it has a heat transfer value of 76.6034 W and a pressure drop value of 152.82 Pa. Model n = 3, has a heat transfer value of 71.3118 W and a pressure drop value of 150.31 Pa. The cross model has a heat transfer value of 105,834 W and a pressure drop value of 182,923 Pa. From the result, the ideal design model is n=2.
