Building a house has come easy nowadays because the technology of mankind has reached an advanced stage of technology in science and research. To build a house material election is critical based on the purpose it is built. There are 10 basic types of wall when constructing a house: poured concrete, masonry (brick or stone), stucco, synthetic or artificial stucco, wood (shingles, shakes or planks), metal (steel or aluminum), vinyl, asphalt shingles, tile (slate or clay) or fiber cement (planks or panels). All of them have their own advantages based on the purpose of the house it is built. One of the main critical of the selection of materials for building a wall is the location of a house. If the location of the house that is built is relatively hot, the house needs air conditioning and cooling mechanism. But air conditioning and cooling mechanism are becoming very dangerous to our planet. Air conditioning cools our home but warms the planet (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/14/climate/california-wildfires-and-reinventing-air-conditioners-climate-newsletter.html?fbclid=IwAR0KxxCHYndtNJnhvN826Zes5ME0maEEobQf9lTGLTGk2jM4-zEyFUwFJqc). So, the world is committed to solving this problem (https://globalcoolingprize.org).

This project is about building a green and smart home that does not need air conditioning mechanism and the walls are built by recyclable hard plastic which automates based on the change in the weather pattern of the house. As seen in the figure the walls are made up of hard plastic which has small holes on them. The wall can be made up of two or more holed hard plastic plates but the center of the holes can never be in the same line of axis. This will help the wall be 100 percent closed but the air can enter the house without the need of any fan or electric powered air conditioning. Now, for any expert with air dynamic knowledge entering air on the house is no problem, but the basic quotation will be what happens when the outside environment is cooler than the house, how do you warm the house? The answer is the red plate as seen in the figure. When the room of the house is becoming cooler than favored by the owner of the house, the red plate which is below the level of the ground and between the two plates of holed plastic will go up and closes the house. And this will enable the house to stay warm. If you compare the power consumption of the mechanism VS the power consumption of the cooling mechanism of the average house, this mechanism will be much cheaper considering it will not work 24/7.

  • Anteneh is inspired by:
    I have dedicated my life for invention and research because not only I have big dreams but also it is my only way out of poverty. We all have a talent we know or did not find out yet. Mine happens to be inventing. I discovered this talent of mine when I was in second year student during my university life. Starting from that point everything seemed not important except creating new ideas. So, until now I have invented more than 50 inventions which are new to the world and the rest are intended for Ethiopia that will change the life of many people including mine. But because of poverty, theft and many reasons I could not manage to make it. But all that matter is I will never give up. I will invent until and after I become successful. That makes me a strong entrepreneur. My skills are aided with a mechanical engineering degree on design, production and sales expertise.
