People often think of using solar energy for producing electricity, but it is actually easier to harness the power of the sun to heat your home. It’s free heat that has been utilized since ancient times but few modern architects or builders really understand the principles involved. The Solar House, by Dan Chiras, explains architectural techniques that can be incorporated into a house to capture heat and store it. The techniques use ordinary building materials and work in both cold and warm climates. They add little expense to the overall cost of a home. See more about this book on the author’s web site. See also Passive Solar Home, which is another book that explains solar heating.
