Venting heat with clerestory windows
I am planning a home and I would like to vent excess heat that builds up through the clerestory windows at the top of the ceiling. If the windows open at the bottom the heat would not rise out the opening. If the windows open at the top the heat would rise out the opening. The problem is that if the windows open at the top, the roof overhang would block the heat flow up. I would like an overhang that would shade the summer sun. Any thoughts.
