Solar Homes often have a negative connotation in that one thinks of a jumble of pipes and wires on the roof. When solar power is taken into account at the beginning of the design process, it can be incorporated into the home without looking like an after thought. Solar heating often consists of both passive and active systems.
The home shown on the left was built in 1987 and has panels on the roof to heat water for both domestic use and for a three level under floor radiant heating system.
These photos, when compared, illustrate the ability of a properly sized overhang on a south facing roof to keep the room shaded in summer and sunny in winter.
