Dear Riaz

You should do Thrmal insulation of your up stair room.If there is space in east and south of your room, you should construct verandha or made temporary arrangement as like shed of sheets etc to protect the walls from direct heat from the sun. The other reamedy to insulate walls and roof. You should visit website gharexpert,com where you find lot of articles about construction and thermal insulation and energy efficent home. For ready referace link is given below.

Gupta Sahib

 

many thanks for your advice. I will certainly follow the link. My experience so far is that rooms upstairs are just like an oven. I have put a 2 Tonne split but of no use. In my books it is waste of time and money to build upstair floor.

I hope with your advice we may avoid this uncomfortable situation.

Regards

 

Riaz
