Using Glass Curtain Walls To Leverage Passive Solar Heating And Cooling Sep 13, 2018

    If your builder is smart about environmental design with Glass curtain Walls, he or she can potentially construct a home that will actually maximize natural heating and cooling by capturing the sun's warmth—or deflecting it. It's not a one-size-fits-all formula. The type of passive heating and cooling features you choose depends a lot on your home's regional climate.

    If winter heating forms the bulk of your energy expenses, a south-facing wall helps you maximize solar heat throughout the day. South-facing walls tend to absorb the most heat due to their position—they receive the sun’s light at a more direct angle. That solar heat filters into your home's interiors, which can potentially help offset some of your heating needs. Conversely, if you live in a warmer climate, it's wiser to a glass wall on the north side of your home.
