Passive Solar Design

Having designed and constructed passive solar homes for the past 20 years, we are qualified to share some of what we’ve learned. Teaching residential solar design in conferences and for our local community college keeps us abreast of the latest innovations and computer programs. We would be glad to help you with your design. We have 270 weather sites entered into our computer. We can run the heat loss calculations on your design, so that you can have a month by month analysis. Examining vents, fans, shading, air movement, mass to glass ratios and temperature swings are important parts of a successful solar design.

The best part about Passive Solar applications is that they have no moving parts, performing effortlessly and quietly without mechanical or electrical assistance. Much of the work can be done using standard building materials and basic construction skills. We have the experience and knowledge to help you incorporate passive solar design into your home.

You can reduce your heating bill by as much as 50% annually, and have a comfortable living space. Simple techniques can make a huge difference in the comfort and energy consumption through the years and give your home a better resale value.
