Heating with the Sun — 2 Comments

  1. It seems counter-intuitive to use reflective glazing for a passive solar house…? On the south-facing windows, wouldn’t you want double-pane clear glass? (Building a passive solar house next summer; currently in the research phase… thank you so much, Kelly, for keeping this incredible resource going. I am a regular reader and have learned so much from this site!)

    • You are absolutely right about that, and I just added this sentence to the post: “I would not use reflective glass on the south side though, because you don’t want to limit the possible heat gain when you need it.” Thanks for pointing this out this possible confusion.
