Passive Solar Building Design
Passive solar building design simply refers to the use of the sun’s energy for the heating and cooling of living spaces. Windows, walls, and floors are made to collect, store, and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and reject solar heat in the summer.
It is called passive because it doesn’t involve the use of mechanical and electrical devices.4C Construction are experts in the design of homes that incorporate passive solar design elements that have been shown to produce buildings with low energy costs, reduced maintenance, and superior comfort.
Low E Glass
Low E stands for low “emissivity”. This type of glass is an energy efficient way to control the heat being allowed in and out of your home.
Low-e glass allows visible light to pass through it but blocks heat-generating ultraviolet light, requiring less artificial heating or cooling to keep a room at a comfortable temperature.
At 4C Construction we can design your home using low-e windows which can reduce energy loss
between 30 – 50 percent. This helps reduce your heating and cooling costs significantly.
