Two elements in the design of buildings that must get attention are lighting and room temperature. These two elements are very important to do correctly, with the aim that the spaces in the building get enough room lighting and natural temperature, in order to give the user comfort in performing its activities. Spaces that have room temperature and good natural lighting will also have enough air humidity so that environmental health is maintained. In addition, having room temperature and natural lighting is quite a means to save the necessary electrical energy because it does not depend on artificial lighting and artificial.
How to save energy on air quality and lighting in the house? One of the simplest things you can do is to use the best wifi thermostat. In addition, saving energy in the building/house can be done by reducing the use of room temperature and artificial lighting. Here are some ways to reduce energy consumption in the house!
The location of the building is perpendicular to the direction of the wind
Buildings should be rectangular, this is advantageous inside
Bring shade trees in the yard that can lower the temperature
Have enough openings for air intake
Placement of openings horizontally or vertically
Placement of a larger room towards the flow of wind
Avoid placement of openings with a distance that is too close, this causes wind cycles too quickly
Avoid the placement of openings that are completely opposite, this causes the direct incoming wind out just like that
Pay attention to the orientation of windows to the sun, for example, the bedroom should not face west
Using a wind tower, which serves to catch and suck the wind, so the air can continue to circulate
Ceilings are elevated, so that air can move more freely
Wear a sloping roof shape (simple saddle) that can eliminate the temperature under the roof space
Space that causes additional heat (kitchen) should be kept away from home
Space that adds moisture (toilets and washers) should be planned with high air exchange.
Giving a porch to a building / house serves as a transitional area between the outer space (yard) and the inner space (building) that can create a microclimate, either inside the building or nearby.
Giving a wide eyelet around the roof of the building to make the space inside it cooler
