3. ShadingDirect sun onto your windows can be your home’s largest source of unwanted heat gain in summer. But by understanding the sun’s angles you can minimise heat being drawn into your home over the warmer months. Consider correctly proportioned eaves, awnings and pergolas which will shade the windows (and walls) in summer but not in winter, thus creating a comfortable internal temperature and reducing the need for air-conditioning.
