As outside air flows into the cave, it has a tendency to move along the cave’s surfaces, allowing this heat absorption and cooling to happen. The clinging of air to surfaces is known as the Coanda Effect, the scientific principle and inspiration for Panasonic’s Radiant Cooling concept, the latest technology behind the new Panasonic Sky Series air conditioners – a new generation of premium cooling and elegant design.
Just like cave ceiling and walls, the surfaces in our homes also act as heat absorbers, trapping heat. Through the concept of Radiant Cooling, warm air is taken in, while cool air is directed towards the ceiling, where it flows along the surfaces of the walls, removing trapped heat and providing a more even distribution of cool air. This results in a lower average room temperature, minus the drying effects and unhealthy excessive cooling of direct airflow on the body. Instead of heat being unevenly absorbed by the direct cool breeze on your skin, it is gently absorbed into the cooler environment. It’s almost like stepping into a mall!
