Solar Heat Gain Thru Glass

Thermopane windows have no sash; therefore, sash area correction = 1/.85 (bottom Table 15). In this example, of the window is covered with the venetian blind and is not; therefore, the solar heat gain factor equals of the overall factor + of the glass factor. Factor for drawn = (3/4.52)+(1/4.80) (Table 16) = .59 .59 Solar heat gain = 164 .85 = 114 Btu/ (hr) (sq ft). Example 4-Peak Solar Heat Gain thru Solex R Glass Given: West exposure, 40 North latitude Solex R glass in steel sash, double hung window

Find:

Peak solar heat gain. Solution: By inspection of Table 15 the boxed boldface value for peak solar heat gain, occurring at 4:00 p.m. on July 23 = 164 Btu/(hr) (sq ft). Steel sash window correction = 1/.85 (bottom Table 15). Solex R glass absorbs 50.9% of the solar heat (footnotes to Table 16) which places this glass in the 48% to 56% absorbing range. From Table 16, the factor = .73. Solar heat gain =164x.73 .85 = 141 Btu/(hr) (sq ft)
