Affordable Energy Efficient Design

What concerns me is ways to build energy efficient homes with passive and active solar heating features, and do so affordably.  I always consider local market construction materials, and how to use them to achieve something that will compete with designs using the latest new fab materials (which can add more cost and more…See More

"Jim Baerg  that's a good example of how thermal mass can help make the temperature range more comfortable by controlling wild swings in temperature.  It slows down the interior heat gain and slows the drop in interior…"

Amazing Energy-Generating Buildings for the 2017 Astana World Expo (?)



  As interesting as the above vision is, we have to ask our selves if the cost of construction to realize the artistic vision of this building, will in any wise be recovered by its projected energy generation capabilities?  For the most part I can see a need for lots of interior cooling and have to ask where the source or power for this is coming from? …

Posted on October 9, 2017 at 2:30pm 0 Comments









  In some places the use of solar heated liquids from hot water solar panels are used to provide heating for floors which are fitted with tubing in the floor to move the heated liquid through.  Heated liquid from hot water solar panels can also be sent to registers or radiators in remote places in a home such as its core.



  Another innovative way that heated liquids can be used is to move the liquid into a…
