I do not wear a winter coat once the weather gets warmer. My house can not take its insulation off in warm weather, though. I have to count on heat gains, that will gradually warm my house up and because of the insulation, the heat will remain trapped inside. When the outside temperatures rise, opening windows is not an effective way of cooling the house down.
I will minimize heat gains by exterior window blinds and roof overhang or, if possible, take advantage of natural shading provided by trees or greenery. Despite these precautions, I want to ensure a supply of cool air. My energy-efficient house will not require regular air-condition to maintain enjoyable temperature during summer. All I need is Futura’s additional module CoolBreeze that provides more natural cooling effect.
CoolBreeze supplies cool air of 15 – 19 °C (60 – 66 °F). Futura with CoolBreeze combines conventional cooling with adiabatic cooling effect. Fresh air is cooled and dehumidified in two stages: in CoolBreeze’s evaporator and in Futura’s heat exchanger. That means it is cooled off with half the power consumption than a conventional cooling would require.
I understand, that the “real feel” temperature is a combination of temperature and humidity. Heat feels more intense, when the humidity is high. CoolBreeze removes excess moisture from supplied air and keeps it at a lower, more tolerable level. That’s why my house does not feel hot, even if the indoor temperature reaches 25 °C (77 °F). Using CoolBreeze helps me avoid drastic temperature changes and sudden blasts of cold, dry air from air conditioning, which are unnatural, unpleasant and may exacerbate respiratory diseases.
