Water can also be used to improve comfort in an energy-efficient manner. The Camp Twin Lakes tree house uses misters at the tree house perimeter to passively cool occupants. The Southface Eco Office uses captured rainwater for both an ‘Eco Mesh’ misting system to improve the efficiency of the air-to-air heat pumps as well as a ‘Coolerado’ evaporative air conditioning system used to pre-cool ventilation air.
