Terrace Cooling System - Ideas
Nowadays we have about 38°C (100°F).
We have a Terrace which has a area of 33m² (355.21ft²).
This terrace has a roof, which consists of polycarbonate plates.
We have the problem that it is very hot on our terrace although we use awnings.
Now I've discovered some ideas how i could cool down our terrace.
The first one could be a water cycle, with a container and a pump.
Then the pump could pump up the water.
The water flows down the roof and flows back into the container.
I don't know if this is a efficient way to cool down our terrace?
The 2nd possibility I discovered is water mist.
I found this video to show the principle:
I don't know if it is possible to sit underneath the water mist without getting wet??
I just want some Ideas and oppinions.
Maybe some of you have realized their own cooling system?
I know how to program an Arduino and other microcontrollers and I am able to develop electronic circuits.
So I think i have the basic knowledge for building such a system, but I can't decide which principle i should use?
I am sorry for my bad english skills, but i hope that you can understand me.
Thanks in advance
