It is called a passive solar house design because there are no electrical or mechanical devices in the systems. Needed elements in designing this particular house plan are including thermal insulation, thermal mass, shading, window glazing and placement as well. Basically installing such passive solar system could be easily done in a newly house but prebuilt house could still be modified to be able to use it as well.
Solar furnace and also solar forge are included in the passive solar system of a house. The system will need conventional energy to be able to operate and control shutters, dampers, night insulation and also other things so that the system could run well. Direct and also indirect method of solar gain are available on the passive solar house plans to do basic heating for the house.
