We just bought a passive solar house. Half the roof is windows and they need to be replaced. I am trying to find a vendor who understands the windows' role in the house design so I can make sure we get the right windows etc. We are having trouble finding someone in our area (Cape Cod, Massachusetts) and I wondered if there were any organizations or groups for folks who own passive solar homes. Thanks.
If a passive house is designed well is it worth the extra cost for Low E window coatings?
