The effect of a new passive cooling device to the indoor air is analyzed based both to experimental and simulating results. The tested device is a ventilated pond protected with an aluminum layer, placed on the roof of the examined building. The indoor air temperature of the building has been recorded, before and after the placement of the roof cooling technique. The record indoor air temperature is analyzed, in regard to the ambient conditions.

The experimental analysis aims to investigate ways to protect a water pond, in order to reduce bottom pond temperature. For this purpose, three identical shallow ponds are together recorded in moderate climate. The bottomless ponds are placed on a concrete roof, exposed to the ambient conditions. Water depth is kept constant in 0.10m, while each pond has an area of 1m2. A number of alternative materials for water protection are tested: white textile, the textile used in ironing board, aluminum layer, aluminum foil and insulation.
In an indirect evaporative cooling (IEC) installation the extracted air is cooled by means of adiabatichumidification. By passing over an air/air heat exchanger this air cools down the supply air. A clearinteraction can be observed between the relative humidity of the extracted air and the thermal comfortrealized in the building.
