AbstractThis survey is one task under the NRC-IRC project “Development of Guidelines for Effective Solar Shadings of Residential Windows for Energy Efficiency and Occupant Comfort” (44-B3243). The purpose of this project is to develop guidelines for the use of internal reflective, mid-pane, and external insulating solar shadings on residential windows to reduce household energy consumption and thermal peak loads. These guidelines will apply to new Canadian houses and to retrofits of existing houses, balancing energy costs and paybacks, thermal and visual comfort of house occupants, potential moisture condensation on windows and durability of window products.
