Do you like having the elements work for you? As a homeowner, you might be concerned with the cost of keeping your home a comfortable temperature, and a Trombe wall might be just the solution you need.
There are some areas of the country where the temperatures change significantly between night and day, and a large thermal mass, such as a Trombe wall would ensure comfortable temperature throughout the day.
The principle is quite simple. The sun will heat up the wall during the day, especially if it is painted dark and is facing toward the equator. Since it has a large thermal mass, it will retain that heat and radiate it into your home during the cooler part of the day. If constructed properly, a Trombe wall can save you quite a bit of money.
Before you jump into the project, it is important that you do the research on how to make the wall efficient, and if it will function the way you want it to, taking your home’s location into consideration.
