Solar heat gain: Beyond treating the glazing itself, solar gain should be planned for during design, because overheating can be a problem on south- and west-facing walls. Shading devices (interior and exterior) and an appropriate ventilation system are worth considering. Hurricane glazing: For areas
areas prone to hurricanes, Pilkington offers a hurricane-rated channel glazing system. Wind loading: Special consideration should be given to spans and related wind loads. It’s recommended that you rely on a good engineer to help with your design. Cost. Because of the wide range of options and configurations
quantify. A good guideline is to assume a 20 percent premium over the cost of standard wall construction. A double-glazed, tempered, exterior wall system ranges from $65 to $75 per square foot for the material cost. A single-glazed wall would be half the cost. Of course this depends on the exact options

Stand on the site and spot the sun One fundamental aspect of sustainable design is solar orientation. A building that takes advantage of the sun’s heat in winter and shades it from the sun’s rays in summer is one step closer
Located in the Hudson River Valley about a two-hour drive north of New York City, the Hudson Passive Project's design was inspired by traditional Upstate New York barn architecture. Stone walls and a laminated wood structure support a simple gable roof. The large, south facing

Eu gostaria de o parabenizar pelo projeto sustentável, no meu país, Brasil, o acesso a placas solares é muito inviável, um sistema de 500kv/mês está nos custando 23 mil reais (reais é a moeda corrente brasileira)
Very interesting Rodrigo. Solar panels are not particularly cheap in Australia either. Furthermore, the usage charge by most power companies make the implementation of solar panels rather prohibitive. Regards, David Muito interessante Rodrigo. Os painéis solares não são particularmente barato na Austrália
Austrália também. Além disso, a taxa de uso pela maioria das empresas de energia tornar a implementação de painéis solares em vez proibitivo. Atenciosamente, David
new rear section was built behind the front two rooms on 10 different levels (yes, 10). The house wraps around a courtyard, which allows early morning and northern sun to fill the house on the two main levels in winter. Saunders says he took inspiration from the sculptural work of the late Rosalie Gascoigne
