Anyone who has been in a solar house, on a cold winter day has felt the warmth and comfort of its natural radiant heat. In 1958, solar pioneer Peter van Dresser built his first solar-heated house, one of the two oldest in the United States. In this book van Dresser lays out in text and illustration the principles an owner builder will need to know in siting, designing, building and living in their solar house. Several sample house plans, ideas for solar hot water heaters, and plans for solar crop dryers give the solar enthusiast the basic information they will need to begin plans on their efficient home. This book shows that solar energy can be economically harnessed by simple means. Means that are within the grasp of the average homeowner and builder.
