Locate an overhang above solar glazing (facing the equator – south in northern latitudes and north in southern latitudes) so it does not block the winter sun.
Exterior horizontal louvers can also be used to shade south glazing. Use the above guidelines to size the louver projection as a fraction of the distance between louvers.
In hot climates (28°L or less) that do not require any heating, extend overhangs, roof, or shading devices to cover the entire solar façade and adjacent outdoor living spaces.
