About Passive Solar House Design
Passive solar floor plans are designed with large windows 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 fossil heating fuel. The home often have wide overhangs over the windows to provide shading in the warm summer months and reduce cooling costs (and save energy). More and more designers and builders are embracing the principles 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 marketplace.
