ABSTRACT

Purpose: to come up with an attractive, sustainable, space efficient clothes drying system for H.S.U.'s CCAT..

Introduction

As many energy conservationists know, drying clothes in a traditional drier contributes to a large part of the average households energy use. At HSU's CCAT building three students reside and have clothes drying needs. Since CCAT's main focus is to "educate the public about the impacts of our technologies on the environment" it would seem fitting to design and build a energy free drying system for their washed clothes(1).

Understanding CCAT

Use:

  • 3 people
  • a spin washer
  • fits in a 2'x4' space with a 7' high seeling
    • Weather
  • Humboldt is often cloudy if not rainy
  • Can change quickly during the day
  1. and like this

Project Requirements

The goal is to build a passive clothes drying system for the CCAT house. Using both a simple yet effective design that could be easily copied by others desiring to ween them selves from yet another energy dependent device. As well as being space efficient and esthetically pleasing so others would want to use one.
