Shade Specifier shows energy savings from efficient use of solar shading

Shade Specifier shows energy savings from efficient use of solar shading

The development by Hallmark's trade associations of sophisticated computer modelling and building performance is now enabling the company to demonstrate the effects of efficient shading more simply. On a typical building model it shows that effective solar shading can recover the cost of installing the blinds in just over two years, compared to the running costs of an air-conditioned building without shading.

The savings are substantial and that doesn't allow for the saving on the capital expenditure for the air-conditioning plant in the first place.
As energy costs continue to rise the contribution that effective shading can make to reducing them is far more than could be imagined.
