Abstract
  • The Los Alamos Solar Design Methodology is used to predict the performance of three hypothetical solar homes situated in the Willamette Valley. The three homes all used a sunspace for supplemental heating and differed only in their level of heat loss. Results obtained indicate that a sunspace can contribute up to 60% of a super-insulated home's heating demand, 40% of a moderately insulated home's heating demand, and 20% of a poorly-insulated home's heating demand. Yearly savings and payback period for the homes are estimated using a variety of alternative fuel sources. Yearly savings ranged from $19.00 to $459.00. Payback periods ranged from 2 years to 324 years. Information on solar access ordinances adopted by Willamette Valley communities is also discussed.
