Heat From The Sun

HEAT FROM THE SUN
Infrared rays of the sun coming through a window will create additional heat above the heat that is blocked out by the dual-pane windows. So where you have a southern or westerly exposure you may need a tinting to block out this heat. This measurement (SHGC) is different than the U-value (as explained under insulation).
