The positive: They give hot air somewhere to go.Planned well, vaulted ceilings can create an escape route for rising hot air. The louvers in this living room vastly improve the home’s airflow in summer, while allowing in plenty of natural light all year round.On the flip side: High ceilings can make a home less energy efficient in the cooler months, with heat tending to sit uncomfortably out of reach. The best passive solar designs will bring in enough sun from the south (from the north, in Australia) to counter this, however.Sunlight Used Right: Modern Homes That Harness Solar Power
