This booklet was produced in efforts to familiarize ourselves with the implications of climate and building energy consumption. Retrofit modifications are recommended for increased energy performance, and methods for passive solar heating are outlined to take advantage of free solar gains. 

NOTE: In the final portion of the booklet titled Passive Solar, an error was discovered in the preliminary calculation for total glass area needed to passively heat the home using solar. While original calculation puts the area at around 600 sq ft, the corrected result yielded a area much smaller at 280 sq ft.
