Diagram of a house with a sun room.

Buildings themselves, or parts of them, are used as collectors. A typical example is a paned sun room. The glass construction prevents heat loss from the building, hence contributing to a reduction of energy consumption. The air which is heated by the sun can be vented from the sun room and can then be used for space Heating.
