Abstract:
An attempt was made to study the effect of roof modifications on temperature humidity index during summer at the buffalo farm of LPM, LUVAS, Hisar (Haryana). Experiment was done in four sheds viz. T1 (control): Corrugated asbestos roof; T2: Corrugated asbestos roof painted white on upper side; T3: Corrugated asbestos roof having EPE (Expanded polyethylene) sheet on lower side and T4: Corrugated asbestos roof painted white on upper side and EPE sheet on lower side. The recording of micro climate viz. Temperature, relative humidity and temperature humidity index was done at 7:00 AM and 2:00 PM daily. The temperature and THI was significantly (P<0.05) higher at 2:00 PM in T1 whereas; RH values were non-significant among treatments. So it can be concluded that microclimate alterations by roof modifications using EPE sheets as well as white paint helped in better cooling effect due to reduced shed temperature and lower THI during summer as compared to existing asbestos roofs.
