|Most of the windows need to be on the south side|
|of the house while the fewest are on the north side.|
|The west side should not have very many windows|
|to protect from the hot summer sun. It's usually a |
simple task to place the garage on the west side.
|South facing clerestory windows and skylights can|
|be used to bring the sun deeper into the house.|
|Passive solar heating is not a substitute for|
|prudent energy efficient construction and |
|While no home can be totally heated by solar|
|radiation, the sun is a free natural resource and |
good planning and design makes passive solar
heating readily available for any home.
