Product Description

Finally there is a contemporary book that demonstrates the potential for heating and cooling a home with free energy. This new volume is a welcome addition to the canon of indispensable solar construction books, bringing fully up to date for the 1990s the legendary promise of 1970s-era solar pioneers: the promise of a home that heats and cools itself with minimal use of a back-up furnace.

Whether you are adopting the model developed by Jim Kachadorian or using another designer's layout and plan, The Passive Solar House will provide you with pragmatic, immediately applicable solar design advice that is usable in any region or climate. Information includes:
-- Proper siting and strategic window selection and placement
-- Energy and money-saving construction tips
-- Ideal air-exchange rates, and ways to avoid overheating
-- Methods for gauging and maximizing thermal mass
-- Criteria for sizing of back-up heating systems
-- Interior design for year-round comfort

This book is brimful of worthwhile, constructive how-to advice, and gives readers the basis for understanding the hows and whys of solar design, including a succinct presentation of ten key solar-design principles that have defined and guided solar architecture for thousands of years. ....read more
