By the 1940’s, half the houses in Miami heated water with the sun [Mc Donald and Bills, 2007]. In this period the passive solar approach took off, thanks to new developments in glass production. Glass could now be economically produced in large sheets. Designers jumped at the opportunity to open their architecture to sun and light. Unfortunately, after sunset, these houses cooled down quickly. A positive heating balance and occupant comfort would have to await the development of better glazing.

Conservation taken to an extreme became 0 INVITED PAPERS 15 popular. Innovative, but too expensive solar solutions were discontinued. One very successful approach was the “Passivhaus” (Fig. 7). The idea was to reduce losses and recover heat to such an extent that even on the coldest days ventilation air could transport the needed heat. Mechanical ventilation was essential to assure good air quality, but it also made no sense to build a super insulated, leaky house. Using the ventilation system to also transport heat was also economical.

It was a quick commercial success. Previously, preparing a shallow, tepid bath entailed heating water on a stove in every conceivable kitchen container. This new wonder invention simply sat on the roof and effortlessly produced solar heated, gravity fed and free hot water for the Saturday bath. The four 30 litre galvanized steel cylinders in a black felt-paper lined pine box with a glass cover cost a mere $25 (typically a months wage). By 1900 more than 1600 Climax units were sold [Mc Donald & Bills, 2007].
