The Beauty of Passive Solar System

Passive solar systems refer to the design technique of collecting, storing, and distributing solar power into buildings and homes. It involves using materials that effectively trap heat (like bricks and stones) or the systematic positioning of windows and other building design elements to let in sunlight and provide heat to the interiors during winter or at night. It is also meant to make interiors cooler during summer, hence bring down air conditioning costs. This cost-effective way of heating and cooling is way cheaper compared to other systems. Ideally, it should be factored in the general building plan of new homes or commercial establishments but it’s also possible to just retrofit existing buildings to achieve the same effect.

Active Solar Systems

In remote locations and even in urbanized areas, it’s fast becoming ubiquitous, since more and more property owners are realizing the huge cuts in power bills that they can enjoy through this method. Since this system conserves and converts solar power into electricity at once, it is more economical in the long run as compared to passive solar systems which just traps heat or lowers inside temperature.
