Curious if there is any suggestions on alternatives to cooling besides traditional central air, window rattlers, or fans?
Interesting...maybe one day mankind can find some funky rock from some one off planet that is so cold it just absorbs heat and not get hot. I've always liked the idea of a refrigerated water bed..imagine coming out of the shower, clean sheets and the bed is constantly at 70?=) I'm open to suggestions...
Actually there are a few buildings that use natural airflow for cooling and heat by the operation of strategically placed dampers ( Green buildings) but to my knowledge there is nothing for residential.
There are houses and hotels built over caves and spring houses worked well for keeping milk cool years ago. What are you looking for or trying to avoid?
The design of the structure can be the most important feature.
