Anyone able to clear up my current understanding of glazing to "floor" ratio?
- Does "floor space" mean the entire house or just the rooms where the north glazing windows will be. Does this area also exclude wet areas and garage?
- If you have come across solar passive design principals for a "U" shaped house could you please point me to them.
I've attached a picture to help illustrate what we're working with. I'm just not sure if i should treat the two sections in the red boxes as separate.. or if my calculations should be for all my walls that face north combined (over the total floor size of the house).
Thanks in advance.
