Rammed Earth Homes Explained Comfortable living is being in a home that remains a consistent and pleasant temperature all year round. Over the years, many ways of controlling extreme temperatures to keep homes comfortable to live in have been developed. Generally these require energy usage that is costly to both the occupants and the environment. Utilising solar passive design and insulation combined with the thermal mass of rammed earth walls, a temperature that is naturally comfortable all year round with minimal heating and no artificial cooling can be achieved. When thermal mass and solar passive design are used correctly, rammed earth walls work to store the sun’s warmth in winter and control the heat in summer. Usually in temperatures around 40oC our rammed earth home sits comfortably in the mid 20oC without air conditioning.
