Slat Screens


How much does covering a part of a house with slat siding help reduce temperature from the sun?

For example: http://www.architectmagazine.com/Ima...m20-132578.jpg

Slat Screens


The net effectiveness depends on the orientation, location, materials, etc.

Way to many factors to consider to make an estimation.

Most that I see being deployed are more so for effect. The reality is that you can accomplish more for less money depending on the construction.

When you say 'you can accomplish more for less money depending on the construction' how for example. I have a cinderblock / brick house. Daylight basement on the lower level.

Where would I find more information on calculating how effective slats would be and how to best design them.
