House With Full Windows
For those of us who live in the tropics, the sun is no longer a Priviledge or privilege. Therefore, a full house windows might be the way out you can save energy at home.
By "natural light" from the sun, you no longer need a light electrical energy during the day. One of the inspirations was a full house windows as practiced by Feldman Architecture is.
Feldman Architecture hired by homeowners in 1906-style stucco-clad Victorian in San Francisco, California, United States. The owner requested that the "traditional sense" this building is maintained.
However, although it still has the "traditional sense", the owner wanted to incorporate modern elements into it. These elements include the number of sunlight and sustainable features. In fact, they want the presence of the park that can be accessed through the family room.
To achieve all that, Feldman Architecture puts the main family room and kitchen on the top floor and removing a part. This section is omitted for rooftop gardens.
Currently, the main part of the house has the best lighting and have access to a private garden with views of the surrounding city. The room was opened by removing a wall. While lighting is added to the roof lights and large windows in the south.
Open-rise stairs, lights, and interior windows also make the light can come down to the hall on the next floor. In the end, the interior of the house was deliberately filled with white, which can add lighting as reflective.
Window Cleaning Ideas
Window of the house every 2 weeks or once a month because it needs cleaned the dust definitely a lot on how to clean the house windows right?, Consider the following tips:
1. Start with Sponge
Clean with soap that contains fluid to start cleaning the windows of your home, but remember it is much better to use soapy water containing a small amount of foam. Be careful when cleaning the area that edges intersect directly with the paint, because it can cause damage.
2. Clean the excess water
By using a glass cleaner is made of rubber, wipe the excess water on the glass I start from the top and continued down, with a pattern resembling the letter S. And periodically, clean the glass cleaning tool with a cloth.
3. Dry it with a cloth
For the next step, clear out all the remaining water using similar lap canebo, if the cloth is still wet, wring it out and dry it, repeat until the water remaining on the surface of the glass to dry.
4. Proper time cleaning windows

Clean the windows twice a year, it can make a different atmosphere and surprising because it makes the room look brighter and fresher. (Bs)
Researchers Successfully Electricity Production from Main Window
A group of researchers at UCLA have found a power window innovations that can generate electricity. With this innovation, you can embed a transparent solar panels to capture solar cell into electricity.
Through this discovery, is expected to pave the way for future architects to produce a building that is energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Because each house can produce its own energy without relying on the supply of electricity from conventional power plants that use fossil fuels and gas.
The solar panels generate electricity can work with records obtain adequate lighting conditions. Innovation is called solar window using high-performance solar cells shaped transparent. Thus, innovation is claimed to have an efficiency of approximately 4 percent, compared with a solar panel on the market. As reported by Ubergizmo, Tuesday (07/24/2012).
This innovation can absorb energy is near infrared spectrum, it can capture up to 66 percent of light. Even during the human eye still see the light, the solar panels are able to produce electricity from the limited light.
