My first “solar shutter” is pumping heat today.

I replaced two big old windows that left space on either side. So … I decided to create 4 passive solar “shutters” (That’s what I’m calling them … well … because that’s what they look like. Anyway, lots of heat today!! Hopefully 4 more will heat my little office when the sun shines in the winter. Hope to add some solar hot water later and that will do it for sure. Stay tuned!

  1. This is really interesting. How did you do it? Many buildings are unsuited to roof-top installations, any infor would be gratefully received.
