This is what the thermometer reads in our bedroom this afternoon at 5:15 PM. This is the beauty of passive solar heating. We have no heater on, but the sun has been shining in the west-facing sliding glass door all afternoon and is making it bright and toasty warm in there! As long as the sun is shining, we have no need for supplemental heating in this house because we designed it that way. Big south-facing windows provide plenty of light and heat in the wintertime during the mid-day hours, and the west-facing window takes care of the afternoon. I am so grateful to Steve for planning this all out very carefully before building this "new" addition to our house 18 years ago. Good thinking, Steve! You're the greatest!
