To make the temperature inside the house was cool, although outside was hot, sometimes the use of air conditioner (AC) become mainstay. However, the use of air conditioning with high intensity will certainly affect the burden of electricity costs borne each month. In fact, it often can not be a satisfactory solution.
On the one hand, many people are unaware that there is a practical, easy, and efficient way to keep the house cool even if it does not use AC. Among them:
Cross vent is one of the common architectural tricks applied to keep the house away from the heat. Cross vent is two ventilation with opposite position in one space.
This form of cross ventilation is usually a door or window. The location does not have to be on the wall of the house, but can also be placed at the top.
With so the air circulation remains smooth, so that dirty and hot air will quickly come out and change clean air that cold temperature. This method is widely used for homes in areas with a large yard.
Create a high ceiling
The high ceiling is believed to slow the entry of temperature or hot air into the room. Why is that, because the sun will not go directly into space, but about the outer walls of the house first, then into the framework of the roof.
From the framework of the roof, the hot air will be forwarded to the ceiling and then flow into every room in the house.
However, when planning to make high ceilings at home, should be cultivated there is a good airflow and adequate. For example the window from the side of the room, front and rear. The distance between windows should be no more than 6 meters. Alternatively, use an exhaust fan. But this method is less effective when the house size is not too broad.
