Forget AC: Cool Your Home Naturally

Cool your home naturally. There are numerous ways to reduce home cooling costs, such as ceiling fans, natural ventilation, minimizing heat gain, weather sealing, insulating, window shading and glazing, roof lightening and landscaping.

Wind catchers, such as this four-sided model, capture cooler air from above the roofline and scoop the breeze down into the home.
