AbstractThis paper presents the results of tests conducted to determine the impact of spectrally selective coated glass on energy consumption. Two low-emissivity (low-e) coatings were compared on a whole house basis: a high solar heat gain glazing and a low solar heat gain glazing technology. In addition to impact on energy consumption, testing evaluated differences in room temperatures, window surface temperatures, and the transmission of solar radiation Correlations between incident vertical solar radiation and consumption were developed and used to predict annual energy consumption and to compare the potential savings of the two technologies.
