Hi.  We (EcoVillage at Ithaca) have started infrastructure development and
are finalizing our plans for heating/ventilation systems.  We'll have
radiant floor heating for winter but the question is how to avoid
overheating in summer when there's a lot of window area.  We plan on using
vegetation for cooling but our consultant still predicts overheating.  Any
advice on cooling for the dog days of summer when even opening windows
doesn't help much?  Has anyone designed a ventilation system for exhausting
heat overnight and drawing in cooler air?
