Earth Cooling Tubes for Ventilation and Climate Control

April 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Learn how you can take advantage of the soil’s moderating temperatures for cooling and passive climate control in buildings, workshops, and more. Living Web Farms’ Black Soldier Fly breeding facility uses the energy of the sun and the heat capacity stored in the earth’s subsoil to create a controlled inside climate with minimal or no energy input.

Richard Freudenberger, LWF’s Energy and Resource Coordinator, will explain how the system works, what materials are used, and what factors you need to know before embarking on a project of your own. We’ll look at siting, costs, calculations, limitations, and what does and does not work with real world expectations.
