It’s 2022 and with the transition to flexible working from home arrangements increasing, people are looking towards more sustainable practices in their lives to reduce energy consumption. The adoption of solar and other environmentally conscious practices is growing and builders are turning to more sustainable building materials and practices.
Achieving effective cross ventilation in your home as a method to naturally cool a space without relying on artificial cooling methods, while not a new trend, is another practice that can be adopted for a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. At Kalka, we carefully consider cross ventilation when designing all of our homes - after all, our designs are inspired by Queensland’s enviable climate and designed for living. Being Queensland born and bred, we understand the importance of cross ventilation and the ongoing benefits of this technique. These include a reduction in energy consumption and subsequent costs, resulting in a more sustainable approach to get us through the warmer summer months.
