This North Carolina home gets most of its space heating from the passive solar design, but the solar thermal system (top of roof) supplies both domestic hot water and a secondary radiant floor heating system. | Photo courtesy of Jim Schmid Photography.
How to Build a Passive Solar Home for Security: In the first episode of the Ecohome Building Guide (video series) we look at what it takes to build a Passive Solar, High Efficiency home and get our demonstration house started. This cold climate, passive solar home is being built in Edelweiss, QC and have documented each step creating a series of tutorials as the house takes shape. #passivesolar #greenbuilding #buildingforsecurity
