Tips for Passive Solar Design
My designer is finishing up our floor plan and elevations, however, I am very late to the energy efficiency platform. I have been trying to read & watch as many videos as possible, but it is like drinking from a fire hose. We will be building a 2200 sf ranch home with some vaulted ceilings and a walk-out basement, facing the South in Missouri. I would like to know where to get the most bang for my buck, using passive solar concepts. Is anyone willing to look at my plan and tell me where to concentrate my efficiency efforts? I am meeting with a couple of builders to discuss our plans, but I live in a smaller community and very few builders are versed in energy efficiency, most just do what they have always done. Thank you so much, in advance.
PS mr_hugh_reference, can you help me?
