Energy efficient louver and blind. Final technical progress report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In the month of July, the authors completed the energy testing at Lawrence Berkeley Labs. The final testing was done with blinds in 15 degree position. This is a comfortable blind angle that allows for view of the outside while allowing for natural light to enter the room. It was found that the energy savings are much higher at this angle. At zero degree blind angle the savings were 150 W/sq. meter, in the 15 degree the heat gain is cut by 225 W/sq. meter. During the same period the heat gain in control chamber was 500 W. The heat ... continued below

The heat gain reduction achieved in tests if used in commercial blinds, would result in an energy pay back period or one year and nine months.
