Keeping cool without air conditioning - a guide for new homes

As the climate heats up, more and more people will be turning on the AC to keep cool. By 2050, up to two thirds of households globally will have an air conditioner, and unless the energy to power these is from sustainable sources, more and more greenhouse gas emissions will be generated which will in turn, contribute to more global warming.

But there is a way to design buildings to keep a comfortable interior environment with resorting to AC. Here are some of the strategies we deploy at Leanhaus.

At leanhaus, we seek to apply these ideas to the design and construction of homes and small buildings to make them more affordable, durable and comfortable. Here’s how we do it.
