We don’t live in latitudes where the sun “gives” heat for free in winter. We have to pay for it: either with money or with our labor. How can we heat our home? And the best friend and helper in hot summer is the air conditioner. But what if you were forced to spend the summer without him and the room was so hot that your brain would melt? Human ingenuity has long since invented several ways to cool the air in rooms without split systems and Sustainable heating.
Maybe you already know some ways to cool and Sustainable heating a room without an air conditioner or heater but read the rest of our material for Sustainable heating.
Sustainable heating: For small or medium growers, implementing a passive heating system can help reduce heating costs during the colder months. In this type of system, sunlight hits the south wall. The north wall has reflective material to capture and store heat. You can use the BTU calculator to measure your room’s heat needs and find the radiator and rack of your choice to comfortably heat your home.
Black buckets filled with water absorb heat from sunlight during the day and slowly release it at night. Thermal curtains can be hung on the south wall to dissipate heat at night.
While this practice helps reduce heating costs, it is not practical for large manufacturers because it takes up valuable on-site manufacturing space and cannot maintain stable and reliable temperatures.
HOW TO MAKE A HOUSE WARMER WITHOUT HEATERS?
First, the insulation of the house itself is important. If you’re serious about saving heat and its rational use, pay attention to the thickness of your house’s walls. If the walls are 40cm thick, it’s no surprise that you expect to be terrified in winter: you’ll have to insulate the walls with foam or other materials with low thermal conductivity. If the house itself becomes a “thermos”, it won’t get very hot in hot weather, but it won’t get cold in winter frosts either.
The next nuance of the house is the windows. Large windows bring in plenty of daylight. They are also a huge source of heat loss. The modern chic of “glass” homes and floor-to-ceiling windows has its drawbacks: the fuel cost of heating such a home is unbelievable. Therefore, it is not easy to keep the heat inside the house without insulating windows and eliminating cracks.
If the windows are wooden, then you have 2 approaches: reasonable, but expensive, and time-consuming, but economical. Following the first path, once you change all windows to metal-plastic at least three room windows, thus reducing heat loss several times and eliminating the concept of ventilation. Unnecessary spaces are simply built up.
The second is the annual red tape of insulating windows, plugging them with foam rubber, sticking them with film (by the way, windows covered with regular polyethylene garden film retain heat no worse than metal plastic. Appearance – that’s amateurish) lovers), cover them with thick curtains.
Now we talk about cooling tips for your house in the summer seasons
COOLING: A combination of manual and automatic ventilation is the most economical way to cool a greenhouse. Ventilation options include side vents, ceiling vents, and greenhouse long-end vents.
A forced draft fan draws air along the entire length of the greenhouse using a vent with a thermostat at the other end. Evaporative coolers are a relatively inexpensive way to provide structural cooling in hot, dry climates. Evaporative coolers work by pulling outside air through damp walls, cooling the air as it enters.
A wet wall is a frame consisting of corrugated cardboard or synthetic material, the surface of which is saturated with water droplets. Excess water is collected in a tank and pumped back through cardboard. Evaporative staves are ineffective in high temperature and high humidity climates.
CURTAINS OR BLINDS FOR WINDOWS
The most vulnerable places in our apartment to hot air are the windows. Even if they are as tight as possible, the sun’s rays will penetrate them, the glass, the surface, and then heat the air. The result is an oven. The easiest and most common thing you can do this summer is to close the windows with thick curtains that don’t let in the sun at all or almost completely. This recommendation applies to the sunniest hours, in summer, already from 8 am to 9 am to 7 pm to 8 pm.
SUN PROTECTION FILM
This is a variation of the previous version’s theme. The advantage of this method is that the film prevents heating, and reflects most of the sun’s rays, but still a small amount of light penetrates – the apartment doesn’t feel like a cave.
ICE AND FAN
Cutting out the heat from the street is only part of beating it. It is necessary to cool the already warmed air somehow. Here, we must act decisively. All of you may have heard of putting cold water in front of a fan or frozen water bottle at least once. All this works, but it can be done better.
There is no fresh air in summer. It’s just that it’s hot at noon now and there’s no fresh air, so ventilation doesn’t make sense at this time. Windows should be opened when the outside temperature is at its lowest, i.e. from evening to early morning. Let the apartment air out overnight and don’t forget the mosquito nets.
This trick works well when paired with shadows. It turns out that at night you let in the fresh air and in the morning we close the windows with curtains or blinds so as not to miss the heat and preserve the coolness gained. The window can be kept in ventilation mode by setting the handle to the diagonal position.
This method is similar to the humidification method mentioned above. If you wet as many surfaces in the house as possible, especially metal surfaces, then, they say, it gets easier.
This method can only be called an effective method. Experiments have shown that the temperature does drop a little for the first few minutes after the wet wash, but it quickly returns to its previous level, and the person who starts the wet wash doesn’t even have time to notice this trivial result because he’ll be sweating and exercising back.
