Solar Path Finding
Am planning to build a two-floor house with the bedrooms downstairs and a media room upstairs in Southeast PA – 3500 square feet.
I would like to incorporate the concepts of passive heating and cross-ventilation.
How does one find the optimal direction to orient the home? Is there solar path information online that is especially useful.
Also would passive solar homes always look unusual. How do you suggest one incorporate these concepts in a traditional-looking home?
