PASSIVE SOLAR HOUSE PLANS

 

Hopefully, most of us are becoming more and more aware of our surroundings and how to preserve them. At times the housing industry gets a lot of heat from environmentalists that argue the earth's natural resources are being depleted. The preservation of the earth's resources is of great concern and will continue to become more and more of a concern to the coming generations. We are proud to be affiliated with Architects and Designers that take minimal impact into consideration when designing residences. We now have a dedicated category of Passive Solar home plans that exhibits plans of various styles that are designed for optimal positioning in relationship to the sun to increase the energy efficiency of the home and reduce the usage of natural resources such as fuel. More and more designers and builders are embracing the principals of Green Building (building responsibly to reduce environmental impact) using steel studs, engineered lumber products that utilize materials that would otherwise be waste, composite decking made of recycled plastics and more. Each year more and more products are introduced into the market place.

A passive sun room, an energy-efficient woodstove and panoramic windows make this design highly economical. An open living/dining room features an attractive balcony railing, a stone hearth and an adjoining sun room with a durable stone floor. The well-equipped kitchen is separated from the dining area by a convenient breakfast bar.

New House Plans Powered by Passive Solar Energy

By: Brian Toolan
Today environmental consciousness is becoming more of a priority in residential architecture and design, as consumers realize the seriousness of climate change in our world. Extreme weather conditions such as the recent frigid winter in the Midwestern part of the United States, water shortages due to a drought on the West coast, and increased weather events such as tornadoes and hurricanes are causing concern. These facts combined with rising costs for warming and cooling our homes has spurred engineers, architects and builders to explore new methods for natural cooling and heating.  The economic motivation for passive design and engineering is becoming more significant.   According to the Journal of Novel Applied Sciences, America could be saving over $250,000,000 per year on expensive energy and related pollution today.”   Passive cooling, in conjunction with architecture, refers to a naturally cooled building that does not use any energy-consuming technology or devices – no air conditioners - for maintaining a comfortable inside temperature.    Read more
