Sun-tempered House Video Info

Full Title: MIA (Ch.8) Staying Warm (Ep.3) Sun-tempered House

Short Title and Description:
Sun-tempered House  

In part one of our investigation into passive solar house design, we visit the Atchison home in Edmonton. Our solar building expert, Rob Harlan, outlines design features that maximize solar heating for no extra building cost.

About Chapter 8: Staying Warm

The Energy and Utilities Board says our natural gas supplies are in decline. Heating fuel is not a luxury in Alberta so this issue hits close to home, literally. What are the new technologies that will keep us warm in future Alberta winters?

About Made-in-Alberta (MIA) Series

Energy, water and climate, these are hot topics for the 21st Century. With conventional fuel reserves running out, water tables running low, and global temperatures running high, 96 percent of Albertans now want new energy solutions. Since 2004, Barb Allard and her Made-in-Alberta team have been finding these solutions and bringing them to community television and the world wide web.
