I am currently constructing a rammed earth home and I am considering running buried pipework from the house approx. 20m to the edge of an existing lake. My hope is that coupled with a solar chimney it will draw in cooler air around the house during the hottest months of the year. Has anyone had any previous experience with this type of system or have any advice on alternative ways of achieving a cool healthy airflow around the inside of a home?
