Carpet and tile floor coverings. Size 216 m2 Passive Solar Design Good - simply designed energy efficient house. Is well zoned, with small to medium sized rooms that can be closed off and not heated or cooled when not in use. Effective wall to floor ratio - low surface area to volume ratio - reducing heat loss through walls and windows. Not overly glazed or heavily shaded by eaves or an alfresco. Living areas however face south east which is not ideal as winter solar heat gain is reduced.
