Passive Solar Design in Wisconsin (2007)

This fact sheet from Focus on Energy explains passive solar thermal heating system design in Wisconsin. Passive solar thermal heating utilizes the sun to directly heat buildings rather than using mechanical equipment. Passive heating can even work in buildings located in areas like Wisconsin, which typically are not thought of as a prime solar location. The fact sheet suggests that to obtain the maximum benefits of solar thermal passive heating, including the economic savings and the positive aesthetics, designers of solar passive heating systems for homes should face the longest wall south, should focus on designing an energy efficient building envelope and should build with thermal mass products.
