Proper use of solar shading can save you money and prevent over heating in your home. Everyone likes a house with lots of windows to give their home abundant natural light from the sun. The downside to this is that when summer comes around, the house has a tendency to overheat, feels humid and stuffy, and you turn on the air conditioning, running up energy costs.
Solar shading is the term used by architects, engineers and building system designers referring to a range of passive techniques to deal with overheating due to sun exposure on a building’s exterior. It encompasses:
– External Shading
– Window Glazing and Films
– Internal Blinds
