Perhaps shading for hot summers was also considered. These are the first and most fundamental steps toward reducing the energy consumption of a house
Contrary to the impression the word may give, passive homes are anything but lazy. A house designed to take advantage of the solar heat streaming through a window is actively saving energy. Taking it a step further, and into the realm of the Passive House building standard, a house can be designed to work hard
