Placement Of Windows For Thermal Control And Energy Efficiency

Monday, Apr 29, 2019, 9:17 am

Windows are one of the main sources of heat loss during the winter months and heat increase in the summer months. When designing a new home or renovating an older home, where you position the windows can have an impact not only on the overall function of the home, but also on thermal control.

Since the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, homes with windows that face east and west will allow excessive heat to enter the home. By installing windows that face north and south, you can minimize the amount of heat from the sun and help your heating and cooling systems operate more efficiently.

Positioning your windows to allow for cross breezes during warmer months will help keep the temperature at a cooler level without having to use the air conditioning system as much.

Natural sunlight has a myriad of health benefits, so positioning your windows to capture natural light and other elements of nature will add to the overall comfort of your home in addition to cost savings on your lighting bill.
