Passive solar rocks!
I waited too late to take the picture below but you can see that my south facing windows provide me with quite a big of passive solar.
Today it was in the high 40s to low 50′s but our house was toasty warm. Very early I heated the house up with our new wood burning stove but after the sun started to shine in my windows, I’ve needed no other heat source for a good 7 hours. We have used no Atmos Gas heat since the wood stove was installed.
Today I also cooked our main course, black beans and rice, in the solar oven.
And here is Ellie enjoying some passive solar.
