  • With what appears to be complete lack of insulation, the heating/cooling bills will be enormous. Of course the all-glass designs are nice, my parents live in a similar house in USA. But there is an ongoing expense of window cleaning and the energy consumption of environment control is very high. This is a type that would greatly benefit from a solar solution if and when the costs make sense.
