Will the presence of solar panels really help cool my house?
My husband says that the shade from a solar panel installed on a roof will help to cool our (uninsulated) top floor. Is he right?
I think the only thing that the top floor has going for it is that, regardless of the fact that it's there's a lot of western frontage, the room instelf along that western edge is one long room with two windows; there's no wall to contend with for the airflow and I believe that the breeze alone will help to keep it cool by keeping the hot air moving. But only if that door is open!
Loooking forward to your reply,
