Sometimes the best way to cool an area is by releasing the hot air. These projects use the ambient air temperature to operate to allow hot air to escape. When the temperature is above 80˚F , the thermobimetal curls. Once cooled, the system returns to a flat position and the surface to its non-porous state.
