Building a passive solar cell at home

642 views

Published on

Passive solar house has five components: light reflection and heat during the day to collect a thermal mass, heat capture and store an absorption material, a hole or opening to allow light to enter the home energy, a control may vary the amount of sunlight to pass through, and method for the distribution of energy throughout the evening. These components are present and interfere with or without mechanical assistance should be designed to work well for passive solar.

Building a passive solar cell at home

  1. 1. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  2. 2. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME The first two considerations when you’re planning to build a passive solar home are the climate and the solar altitude of the area where you want to build. A passive solar home can be built to accommodate average or severe climates. The solar altitude concerns angles of the sun, which will affect how much light and energy passively enters into the home. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  3. 3. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME Your next consideration is the orientation of the home, which is also related to the climate and the solar altitude. These factors must be addressed by your architect before the building design begins. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  4. 4. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME A passive solar home has five elements : a thermal mass to reflect light and collect heat during the day; an absorbing material to hold and store the heat; an aperture or opening to allow the light energy to enter the home; a control to vary the amount sunlight that is passed; and a method for distributing energy during the evening. These elements must be present and designed correctly for passive solar to function without intervention or mechanical assistance. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  5. 5. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME With proper home maintenance, passive solar elements will last indefinitely no furnace to replace every 20 years, no electricity required, no motors to wear out, and no noise, smell, or toxic chemicals involved. Passive solar is clean, simple, efficient, and free. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  6. 6. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME These are the basics of designing a passive solar home. You can then design the appearance of the home with your architect, the same as any other home. The details in passive solar energy are in the design and proper implementation. Understanding the concept and knowing the five components of passive solar should help you understand and use passive solar in your home design. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  7. 7. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME Passive Solar Home Modifications There is a happy medium between designing and building a brand new home and merely opening the blinds to let the sun into your current home. You can build a passive solar addition to your residence, such as a sunroom—a simple and effective way to harness the sun’s energy. Many sunroom plans and kits can be purchased and installed. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  8. 8. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME The picture below shows all five of the components of passive solar in a single room addition. This type of home addition is a relatively low-cost option. The price of a new home may begin at $200,000, but a passive solar addition can cost only a few thousand dollars. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
  9. 9. BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR HOME Another option is to modify an existing room in your home to make it more solar friendly. Your home is probably built in a square or rectangular format, and one or more sides of your home will likely have some sun exposure. Add a thermal mass floor or wall and some properly placed windows, and you can create a room that most people will envy—a warm, quiet, sunny place to sit during a cold winter day. This type of home modification can often be accomplished without disruption to the rest of the home, and at a relatively low cost. www.solarcell.firstnewsupdate.com
