WHY is it important to avoid choosing a hot house?
HOW to avoid the west sun exposure?
Conventional wisdom pointed to choosing either North or South facing units. All developments come in a mixture of units with different facing, while avoiding the west facing will be crucial, not all homeowners will have that luxury as the selection system may not allow them to avoid one. Then the 2nd best option would be choosing the either North or South facing units. Many would think or have been made to believe that North or South facing units will not get any west sun exposure. Elementary science will tell you that the Earth rotate on its axis at a tilted angle of 23.5 degrees while orbiting the Sun 365 days a year. The Earth rotation at an angle will translate to at least 5 months of exposure to west sun for either North or South facing units. Yes, you can only minimise the exposure, but not avoiding it.
