Do you want to know how to cover, surround, protect, and envelop your home or any type of building, in ways that are sustainable? By sustainable, I mean not only earth-friendly, but can be financially sustained by you in the long term. I do.
It's summer still; the outside temperature reaches 36 degrees Celsius still; hotter even at the peak of the season in the past weeks. Our airconditioning is working doubly hard it seems to no avail. Beat the heat! We're bent on this desire; but at the same time, we 're afraid of the coming electricity bills. Cooling the insides of the building is costly.
The Philippines is blessed with "sunniness" ---happy sunshines that go perfectly well with our countrymen's smiles. Sun light is all good, light, and harkens in positive vibes and the spirit of happiness. We welcome it. It gives life.
Sun light brings with it heat, though, and too much of it isn't healthy, isn't good. It can dry one up, and sap out life from one.
How can we enjoy sunlight's goodness and avoid its ill effects? I think, I hope, this coming lecture from the GreenAP would provide the answers.
There is so much that we can learn from the lectures that our dear green architecture advocates are sharing. Do attend them. Below are the details. You are invitted to come. Whatever you learn, share them. Spread the word on green building and green living.
