The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient is the window property used to rate the amount of energy allowed through windowsThe SHGC is the fraction of incident solar radiation that passes through a window and becomes heat inside the building.

Solar radiation absorbed by various materialsSolar Heat Transmission through Windows Solar heat gain through windows with roller shades
Structural materials include cardboardwood plywood either glass or plastic affects both the heat gain and the heat losstechnical aspects of solar box
Thin film coatings on glass or plastic that absorb or reflect solar energythereby reducing solar gainSolar heat gain coefficient (SHGC)The fraction of solar radiation admitted through a window or skylight both directly transmitted and absorbed and subsequently released inward.
Direct Gain is the most basic form of solar gainSolar energy enters through south facing glazing and is absorbed by thermal mass incorporated into the floor and wallsHeat is stored in the thermal mass during the day and later released during the night into the living space.
The solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) is defined to be the quotient of the total solar gain per unit area through a window to the interior of a building and the incident solar
A key to winter function is allowing passive solar heat gain and natural light to penetrate deep into every roomThe front South hallway combines with the planterbed to create a very openairy feeling throughout an HTM.
A list of potential glazing materials for solar collectors with pros and cons Opaque to long IR to reduce heat loss This is the corrugated plastic the
Plastics and wood may make good energy absorbersbut many types are not suitable for solar applications because most plastics have relatively low melting points and wood may catch fireWith reflective coatings however plastic materials may be suitable for solar energy equipment as long as temperature demands are modest.
Because of water s relatively low thermal diffusivitywhich is closer to wood and plastic than to earthen materials it works best as solar thermal storage in very thin containers with lots of southern exposure.
Solar gain (also known as solar heat gain or passive solar gain) refers to the increase in thermal energy of a spaceobject or structure as it absorbs incident solar radiationThe amount of solar gain a space experiences is a function of the total incident solar irradiance and of the ability of any intervening material to transmit or resist
reduce the heat loss on this side of your houseso there is actually a net gainThe solar gain in a south facing sunroom will often be enough to heat the sunroom with
