Abstract:
Windows are an essential design element of desert homes that provide a view, light, ventilation, egress and filter the environment. Windows may account for 10 to 25 percent undesirable heat loss or gain to interiors. All desert dwellers can save energy and money by becoming educated in basic principles of solar benefits and user management and control. People relocating from other climates often do not understand window design strategies that ameliorate the extreme desert climate. The design strategies and technology necessary for control is presented in this thesis. This thesis presents current window technology and proven interior and exterior window shading design strategies that save energy yet maintain a pleasant visual and physically healthy interior comfort. Architects, interior designers and residents of the southwest will find this information useful as a decision base for specification of energy efficient windows and design.
