Ventilating a Cathedral – Raked- Skillion Roof

Ventilating a Cathedral roof

Summer months, the house is hot, hot, hot,… and you want it cooler.

The air conditioner isn’t coping……and sleep is not happening.
So what do clever people do?
Take their mattress outside?

No, they purge the heat out of the house in the evening, replacing it with the cool air from outside.
No air conditioner and you get to sleep.
Heat to goes up through the ceiling vent and out to atmosphere via the Windtower roof ventilator.
Cool air is drawn in simultaneously, through the window, to cool the room down.
Start the next day cooler…. instead of adding to the stored heat present otherwise.
