The Passive Solar House
Using Solar Design to Heat and Cool Your Home
by James Kachadorian

      The Passive Solar House gives readers a comprehensive look at the ten key principles of solar design that can complement any style of architecture or method of building. Kachadorian's sensible approach is both appealing and reassuring for those who think innovation in solar design ended in the 1970s. Kachadorian emphasizes that solar homes need not look experimental or futuristic, nor do they require complicated, expensive, or hard-to-maintain gadgetry. Good planning is worth much more than special technologies or equipment.

      The Passive Solar House contains information on how to save money when building, how to avoid overheating, and which interior design features will lead to year-round comfort. Heavily illustrated, with color photos and easy-to-use formulas, this book is perfect for anyone considering a building project which maximizes energy efficiency. The author's clear, simple presentation of the basics combined with his technical authority make the material accessible to the owner/builder, professional contractor, or architectural student.

      The new edition of The Passive Solar House includes a CD with user-friendly, Windows-compatible software to supplement the design process explained in the book by allowing homeowners/designers to enter the specifications of their design and see how changing a variable will affect its energy efficiency.
