THE EFFECT ON THE HEATING AND COOLING OF BUILDING BY SLAT ANGLE VARIATIONS OF VENETIAN BLIND

Abstract

The effect of slat angle and absorptance on the heating and cooling loads of buildings in Seoul(Korea) is studied. An analytical model of a window system with Venetian blind is developed and validated with the published experimental data. The validated model is successfully incorporated into well known TRNSYS computer program Hour-by-hour heating/cooling loads of a typical building with and without Venetian blind are compared. Results show that the use of window system with Venetian blind can reduce the building heating load by about 5% and cooling loads by as much as 30%.
