  • (Air-conditioned) buses fares cost a little over four times the fare of an ‘Ordinary’ route covering the same distance. Those buses have route numbers starting with A.
  • A system which can generate both temperature controlled cold and warm air via a fan.
  • A system for controlling the humidity, ventilation, and temperature in a building or vehicle, typically to maintain a cool atmosphere in warm conditions
  • air conditioner: a system that keeps air cool and dry


  • The passive voice
  • peacefully resistant in response to injustice; “passive resistance”
  • lacking in energy or will; “Much benevolence of the passive order may be traced to a disinclination to inflict pain upon oneself”- George Meredith
  • passive voice: the voice used to indicate that the grammatical subject of the verb is the recipient (not the source) of the action denoted by the verb; “`The ball was thrown by the boy’ uses the passive voice”; “`The ball was thrown’ is an abbreviated passive”
  • A passive form of a verb

The Passive Solar House: Using Solar Design to Heat and Cool Your Home (Real Goods Independent Living Book)
The Passive Solar House: Using Solar Design to Heat and Cool Your Home (Real Goods Independent Living Book)
Finally there is a contemporary book that demonstrates the potential for heating and cooling a home with free energy. This new volume is a welcome addition to the canon of indispensable solar construction books, bringing fully up to date for the 1990s the legendary promise of 1970s-era solar pioneers: the promise of a home that heats and cools itself with minimal use of a back-up furnace.
Whether you are adopting the model developed by Jim Kachadorian or using another designer’s layout and plan, The Passive Solar House will provide you with pragmatic, immediately applicable solar design advice that is usable in any region or climate. Information includes:
— Proper siting and strategic window selection and placement
— Energy and money-saving construction tips
— Ideal air-exchange rates, and ways to avoid overheating
— Methods for gauging and maximizing thermal mass
— Criteria for sizing of back-up heating systems
— Interior design for year-round comfort
This book is brimful of worthwhile, constructive how-to advice, and gives readers the basis for understanding the hows and whys of solar design, including a succinct presentation of ten key solar-design principles that have defined and guided solar architecture for thousands of years.

Minergie(R) Siedlung (Swiss)

Minergie(R) Siedlung (Swiss)
Hinter dem Bahnhof – Behind a train station you can see a "Minergie(R)" building compound. Minergie is a type of solar energy passive architecture. Every detail from the windows, the materials, fixtures is tailored to save the maximum energy (heating, air conditioning, lighting), but still remaining a comfortable living environment.

I wish more people knew about "solar energy passive" architecture and "Minergie(R)". You can save lots and lots of energy. For those of you who think you don’t need this, because you live in the tropics, it can also be designed for air conditioning.

Passive Low Energy Cooling of Buildings (Architecture)
A practical sourcebook for building designers, providing comprehensive discussion of the impact of basic architectural choices on cooling efficiency, including the layout and orientation of the structure, window size and shading, exterior color, and even the use of plantings around the site. All major varieties of passive cooling systems are presented, with extensive analysis of performance in different types of buildings and in different climates: ventilation; radiant cooling; evaporative cooling; soil cooling; and cooling of outdoor spaces.
