Our houses are mostly built from brick and windows are thin. Only very few houses has got underfloor heating. We dress the same for inside and outside the house. The walls in hot areas like Northern Cape are build from stone and can be almost 1 meter thick.(3 foot) Also smaller windows to keep the house cooler. There is a big difference in temperature from inside to outside the old houses in Northern Cape. When you go outside it almost feel like you walking into a oven.
