Proper ventilation can help you save money and energy. Ventilation is the most cost-effective and efficient way to cool buildings. To avoid heat build-up it is best to add a roof ventilating system in your building.
Natural ventilation can be used to cool the room, although it will need to be supplemented by ceiling fans, window fans, or spot ventilation. Roof ventilation is essential. Interior ventilation is not effective in hot, humid climates with small temperature swings between day and night. Natural ventilation in your attic can help reduce the need for air conditioning.
Sealing the attic is an alternative approach. Instead of sealing it on the floor, you can put insulation inside the roof. This makes the attic part of your conditioned space. Sealing attics in new homes is easier, but to the older houses, there is a need for reconstruction of the ceiling.

Heat buildup can be prevented
Spot ventilation is a great way to keep your home cool on hot days. You can shade your home and prevent heat buildup by landscaping your lot. If you are replacing your roof, use a lighter-colored material to reflect heat. To help insulate your home to the minimum recommended heat levels, consider using a radiant barrier.
When the outside temperature is higher than your home's on hot days, close all exterior doors and windows. Also, ensure that your underfloor ventilation is maintained.
Close all shades and other window treatments. Install insulated window shades that will reduce heat conduction into your home by blocking out radiated heat from outside.
Cooking at home is a major source of heat. On hot days, avoid using an oven. Instead, try to cook on the stovetop. Spot ventilation is a great way to remove heat from your house.
