Stewart Solargon 30 Before and After

 The Stewart Solargon early Summer.

Early fall with landscaping nearly complete.

Solargon Passive Solar

Passive solar design uses sunshine to heat and light homes. It is usually part of the design of the building itself, using certain materials and placement of windows or skylights. A successful passive solar building needs to be very well insulated in order to make best use of the sun's energy. Polyurethane SIPs are unsurpassed in performance and the result is a quiet and comfortable space, free of drafts and cold spots. Passive solar design can also achieve summer cooling and ventilating by making use of convective air currents which are created by the natural tendency of hot air to rise. The octagon shape and open design of a Standard Solargon lends itself well to this end.

In the winter when heating is required, the sun is low in the sky, which allows the heat to penetrate into windows on the south face of a structure. In the summer, south-facing windows are shaded by an overhanging roof to keep out the high hot summer sun. Because much of a building's heat is lost through its windows, the majority of windows in a Standard Solargon building are located on the southeast, south and southwest walls for optimum solar gain.

Sunset Party in Sand Creek.

 Sand Ceek Park in the high plains of northern Colorado (8,500ft above sea level) is not known for mild winters yet the Willett's are comfortable in their energy efficient off grid Solargon home. By combining two Solargon 30's with a connecting link they have designed this beautiful home.
