The Government is seeking to decrease the amount of glass and windows, for glass has a low R value and so it transmits heat and cold quickly. However the reality of this is that homes will become dark and unattractive places to live in . More over, the important issue is to ensure windows are well placed and are coordinated effectively with eave lengths and orientations.
“ Insulation and diminished windows does not relate to design for climate!!”
In basic terms, what is important is that a home is perfectly orientated and that the structure is carefully planned and executed in order that the home has the ability to react to temperature change. A home needs to enjoy winter sun, eliminate summer sun, repel western sun and ensure its occupants enjoy congenial temperatures and prevailing breezes. This will ensure maximum comfort and performance.
