April Green Building Lecture to discuss summer cooling

The April Green Building Lecture will discuss how to improve summer comfort, removing heat and saving energy during the summer.

The free lecture is slated to run from 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4 at the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granit Reef Road in Scottsdale.

Southern Arizona builder Michael Ginsburg will provide an overview of radiant cooling systems and their advantages. Attendees can hear how hydronic radiant cooling in the S.E.E.D. Home (Super Energy Efficient Design) provides exceptional cooling and comfort in hot/dry climates.

More than 40 percent of all electricity consumed in Valley homes is used for air conditioning, a press release states.

Radiant cooling systems have been widely used in Europe, and they are starting to become more popular in North America — especially in the hot/dry climates of the Southwest.

The final lecture in this series will be June 6 and the topic is “Cutting Edge Residential and Commercial Green High-Performance Buildings.”
