Atmos Energy (American's Largest Natural Gas Only Utility) recommends the use of solarscreens to keep sunlight out in the summer - "Solar screens can reduce the amount of heat transferred into a room and help to lower summer energy bills".
As part of the Energy Savings Program, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) stated - "Solar screens were installed on building offices and had significant improvement in controlling temperature and reducing demand on HVAC, and improving climate conditions for agency staff".
Solar screens usage is indorsed by electric companies such as Reliant Energy - "Solar screens are more effective that reflective solar film because screens stop the solar heat before it gets into your home or business..." declared Energy expert at Reliant Energy.
The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) says in a study that shading the outside of exposed windows or doors is the best way to stop heat build-up (www.eere.energy.gov) (www.energysavers.gov). Case study improvement to cut down on the loss of conditioned air. www.energysavers.gov/pdfs/casestudy_austin.pdf
ENERGY STAR (Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Energy Star has expressed - Control direct sun through windows depending on the season and local climate. During cooling season, block direct heat gain from the sun shining through glass on the east and especially west sides of the facility. Depending on your facility, options such as "solar screens," and vegetation can help. Interior curtains or drapes can help, but it's best to prevent the summer heat from getting past the glass and inside. During heating season, with the sun low in the South, unobstructed southern windows can contribute solar heat gain during the day. www.energystar.gov
Partnerships for Home Energy Efficiency (PHEE) is a new, multi-agency effort of the federal government to bring greater energy efficiency to the U.S. housing market... In hot climates, exterior shading and house orientation control solar gains.
