This way it would suck cool air in from the cross flow points (front and back doors) up into the attic and out the vents. I would bet that it would cool off the attic in less than an hour and could be shut off. I imagine that I could even get fancy and put an automated thermostat on it and have it turn on at a specific temp.
Those are good ideas. We have decided to buy one fire sprinkler (like in shopping malls) and have it installed with PVC pipe on the roof of the bedroom that is airconed. When the sun comes up -- it goes on and at night off again. Our attic is well insulated but that light water spray on the metal roof will help hold down the heat that the aircon has to fight and should lower the electric bill around 30%.

Are you charged a flat rate for water like some other province areas are? In Samar it's 300P/month where we go.

There is a monthly minimum charge of some kind. However, my wife works for the local water company and free water is a benefit of her employment so no worries..
