Title: Passive solar house designs for New Mexico climates: final report (7/1//31/80) Publication Type: Book: Authors: Lumsdaine, M: Place Published. Minimum total life-cycle cost (solar+conservation+heating+cooling) occurs when the initial costs (solar+conservation alone) are approximately $$10, for a square foot house in the climate of Northern New Mexico.

At this minimum, the costs of conservation and solar are roughly equal, say, $$ Size: KB. The New Mexico Passive Solar Home Temperature Survey came out at the "tail end" of funded research resulting from the energy crisis of '73/ Byenergy concerns were "perceived" as being over in the U.S.

Printing budgets for solar research results. New Mexico has an ideal climate for passive and active solar homes. We at Sunlight Homes are native New Mexicans and started our business in Albuquerque in the mid s, helping our neighbors throughout the state take advantage of our abundant sunshine in the design of their new, passive solar.

Sustainable House Plans. Passive solar design refers to the use of the sun’s energy to heat and cool the living spaces in a home. Active solar, on the other hand, uses solar panels to produce electricity. Passive solar design utilizes the southern exposure to allow the sun to enter the home during the winter and warm its interior.

Passive Solar House Plans A passive house plan is an eco-conscious floor plan for homeowners who want to keep green living in mind when building. These homes typically have large windows to capture sunlight and other features that reduce the use of natural resources and increase overall efficiency.

Conservation Guide. Most of our Passive Solar House Plans come with a page conservation guide, outlining instructions on best practices for building.

Efficient use of space. Typically, Passive Solar House Plans are designed in order to conserve space. Open floor plans and high ceilings make small spaces feel larger in Passive Solar House Plans.

“Passive solar” is a design approach that was popularized in the s and in which heat from the sun is strategically captured to warm homes. Passive solar’s low-tech approach doesn’t. The easiest and most telling ratio or % for heating performance of passive solar design fenestration involves only 2 variables: 1.

Sun-facing glass area 2. Floor area of intended heated space. Sun tempered: 7%, 70 sqft of glass for sqft home. Passive solar %, sqft for a typical passive solar. The new edition of The Passive Solar House includes a CD with user-friendly, Windows-compatible software to supplement the design process explained in the book by allowing homeowners/designers to enter the specifications of their design and see how.

FREE Shipping/5(26). architecture can integrate passive solar design. Passive solar heating techniques generally fall into one of three categories: direct gain, indirect gain, and isolated gain.

Direct gain is solar radiation that directly penetrates and is stored in the living space. Indirect gain collects, stores, and distributes solar radiation. This book provides the fundamentals and components of passive solar design. A collection of floor plans that work in a variety of sites in North Carolina are also included in this book.

The passive solar house plans in this book are affordable homes that are File Size: 7MB. The Passive Solar Design and Construction Handbook is an unbeatable guide for architects and building contractors who want to satisfy the growing demand for passive solar residential design.

A complete revision of the bible of passive solar design originally published by the U.S. Department of Energy, this is the only comprehensive guide to adapting standard building practices to current passive solar by: Passive solar design begins with the simple idea that you can build a house that uses natural heating, cooling, ventilation and homes require much less fossil fuel energy to heat.

This is also the closest building I think I've seen online to the shape/siting of the granary, although this one is obviously oriented with the long roofline pointing south.

Guide to Passive Solar Home Design. Elements of Passive Solar Design. To design a completely passive solar home, you need to incorporate what are considered the five elements of passive solar design: 1. Aperture (Windows)– Windows should face within 30 degrees of true south, and during winter months they should not be shaded from 9 a.m.

to 3 p.m. Figure 1: five main principles aiming to increase the passive solar design potential of a building. Heat Gain There are three main techniques to capture and use passive solar energy in a house.

These techniques, characterized by the way they collect, store, and distribute heat are summarized below. Direct gain relies on south-facing windows. The best eco friendly & energy efficient house plans. Find small, sustainable, net zero, passive solar home designs & more.

Here are a couple of earthbag underground greenhouse plans. Care must be taken waterproofing, draining and ventilating the greenhouse. The most efficient pit greenhouses have south-facing windows. The north wall stores heat.

This earthen-walled underground greenhouse has lots of natural clay to absorb : Keiren. While passive solar design may keep pipes from freezing in optimal climates like New Mexico, and so be an example of "Resilient Design", large windows without movable insulation is just a recipe for wasting energy and uncomfortable occupants (or possibly even frozen pipe disasters) in more demanding climates.
