    you are assuming the temperature will drop at night and because heat always moves from hot to cold, the mass that has been collecting heat all day will radiate heat out to the cooler room thus heating it. hope it helps.

    Thanks. But isn’t this a system for heating instead of cooling ?

    Yi, sorry I miss understood your question. If you look at page 229, They are placing thermal mass in the ceiling to collect the heat and then they are moving cold air across a mass to cool the room and chimney affect to move the hot air out.

    To be honest in my opinion the system would work more efficiently without the thermal mass. By blowing air directly into the room you can remove voc along with heat.
