There are many different options to choose from with passive solar design but the one that will be featured in this idea is a sunspace. From the positioning of the house on the landscape to the angles of the eaves and the direction of the windows, a house that uses a sunspace can significantly cut down on energy use and costs. Also known as isolated gain. The sunspace is a practical solution for anyone who wishes to make a shift towards more planet friendly living.
