Solar: occupant's view

To the real estate editor: In your Aug. 31 issue there was a letter from Brenda Krachenberg concerning passive solar homes.

Mrs. Eysmans and I built a passive solar-envelope home, super-insulated with double walls not only on the north side, but also on the east and west sides. Our builder broke ground in October 1980, and we moved in last January. We installed electric baseboard heat in every room with separate controls. The only time we used any electric heat was in the bathrooms in the morning for, perhaps, 45 minutes.
