Passive Solar Home Design. Minimizes energy use; reduces heating and cooling loads through energy-efficiency strategies & reduces loads in whole or part with solar energy. Because of the small heating loads of modern homes it is very important to avoid oversizing south-facing glass and ensure that south-facing glass is properly shaded to prevent overheating and increased cooling loads in the spring and fall.
