Do you take advantage of the sunlight to help heat your home?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 28, 2008
“I do actually, especially lately with the nice weather. I’ve been seeing how long I can go without turning on the heat, but it looks like I might be about that time.”
“I do open up the drapes to let the light in because I have good eastern/southern exposure, but I don’t have any skylights or solar panels.”
“Not on purpose. I don’t really think about letting the sun in during the day, but I haven’t turned on the heat yet. I might consider it once I get the bill.”
“Yes, of course. In fact I’ve been designing the house I’m planning to build in North Carolina to take full advantage of the sunlight, natural water flow and precipitation.”
