» What is Solar shading
» Both in winter and summer
Solar shading all the year round
Solar shading is an effective energy saver all year round. In summer it can cut the amount of heat entering a building and in winter it can decrease heat loss. In both cases, the need for additional climate control measures is substantially reduced.
In winter, intelligent solar blinds will remain open to let free solar energy into the building during the day, reducing energy requirements for heating. Once the sun has set, these will close, reducing heat loss and thus continuing to save on the energy required for heating.
During the day in summer, solar shading will help to keep excessive heat out of the building, which can dramatically cut the need for air conditioning. In the evening, opening the windows and the solar shading allows the building to flush any heat build-up, again reducing the need for air conditioning.
