    We have never had the need to dehumidify during the heating season in our current house, which isn't particularly tight. Just the opposite, in fact. Is that something we can expect in a tight house?

    A passive solar house is just that. It has no active solar components (no solar panels).

    We are building the house we want. The design isn't going to change.
