  •  DOOR DUH!! [If anyone's still reading] (6+ / 0-)

    I think outer doors on walls facing east or west should open to the south.

    You need a door to funnel air when the weather is warm. North winds at all times of year are cold; you really don't want to funnel them when you open a door in the winter, but in the warm months often in the cooler evenings, funneling in a south breeze 4-5 degrees cooler than the house will save you running either AC or a fan.

    I've got a lovely 78 degree south breeze flowing by tonight but a door that opens to the north.

    The whole neighborhood is humming with AC but I've got just my attic loft window fan blowing out, and doors/windows for cross ventilation doing their things.
