3 Principles of Solar Home Design 1 Orientation: Let the Winter Suns Energy in. Aim most of the windows to the south. 2 Summer: Keep the Summer Sun Out: Shading 3 Storage: Use thermal mass to store the Solar Energy gained and to Store Coolness in the summer. 4 Weatherization: Insulation and sealing house to keep it warm in winter and cool in the summer 5 Air Circulation: Locate operable windows to capture cooling breezes, release excess heat.

4 #1 Let Sun in: Orientation

5 #1 Let Sun in: Direct Gain

6 #2 Shading: Strategic Use of Eaves to Let in Winter Sun and Keep Out Summer Sun

7 #2 Shading : Sun Angles

8 #3 Storage: Thermal Mass : 25%+ of Floor Area (conduction and Convection)

9 #3 Thermal Storage: Water Tubes

10 #4 Keep Suns Energy In: Weatherization

11 #5 Air Circulation
