Free-running Dwellings

This Advisory Note describes how to develop an energy efficiency Performance Solution for a free-running dwelling. This type of design is used in hot climates where cooling is the main consideration. These dwellings are deliberately designed to use natural air-movement as a substitute for air-conditioning.

P2.6.1 in NCC Volume Two is the relevant Performance Requirement for this Performance Solution.
