    Hi
    I thought it would be worthwhile to bring to the attention of Hub participants this excellent piece from last week featuring PNCC EDA Nelson Lebo. Nelson has got it exactly right in my view, and because he has provided such a visual counter-intuitive example, it grabs attention.

    This compares with an earlier article where most of the recommendations were good but advice to keep windows open to create a cross draught is often not sensible on hot days, where the first step should be preventing the house from warming. If the house is 21-23C from overnight and the daytime temp is soaring into the high 20sC, then one should keep the house shut up for as long as possible until the air from the outside is cooler

    Would be good to hear of any other experiences?

    regards
