The Prescott Solar heated house wasn't originally planned to be a solar-heated structure, but after a feasibility study was determined to be ideally suited for solar heating.
If I were to sum up our experiment to date, however, I'd say that the Prescott house solar system has performed beyond our expectations. Its cost — based on going market prices for labor, material, and profit — was about $8,300 almost equally divided into thirds for collection, storage, and air handling.
