| Examples of fresh water obtaining by condensation of moisture to use in remote areas are provided. During warmermonths moisture condenses out of the atmosphere along with preliminary evaporation of salt water into the atmosphere using sun. To evaporate the salt water the outer surface of metal roof is used, and the inner surface -to condensate. Excessive moisture around the building helps to reduce airborne dust and moistening the soil that can significantly reduce amount of water for plants. The cooled air goes to rooms. In winter the moisture contained in the exhaust gases of heaters is used. It is condensed by metal tube having ribbing outside. While freezing weather the desalination bynaturally freezing is used additionally.
