A well designed sustainable passive solar home is perfect for the Perth climate, as we have plenty of sunshine, cooling sea breezes, and mild temperatures in winter.
Design for Seasons offers a building design service specialising in passive solar, energy efficient homes and environmentally sustainable building design. Buildings that are thermally comfortable, energy efficient and as individual as the owners. Passive solar heating is free when designed into a new home or addition.
Designing for passive solar heating is basically letting the winter sun in the building and having that energy stored within a thermal bank such as concrete, brick, stone or rammed earth. This stored heat energy is slowly released back into the internal spaces as the air temperature drops, maintaining a comfortable indoor environment.
