A Home That Heats and Cools Itself

May 21, 2007


Invention:

Two factors contribute to this effect. First, the entire house is
made of southern yellow pine. This wood is especially efficient at
maintaining a constant temperature; it absorbs heat during the day and
releases it at night. Second, air circulates in a convection cycle from
top to bottom of the house, constantly redistributing the heat.
