The most economic air conditioning of living and working places can be achieved by natural ventilation if sufficient. This provides not only the circulation of clear air, but also the decrease of indoor temperature, especially, during hot summer days, provided that the temperature of clear air is lower than that of indoor. From the geometric optimization point of view, both size and position of windows in buildings are important parameters to obtain a uniform indoor air velocity distribution.
