AbstractThis report presents the results of several window shading experiments conducted at the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology (CCHT) research centre located in Ottawa, Canada, to identify a testing procedure for window shading products. The results provided an overview of the order of magnitude of the energy effects that can be expected from shading devices in a residential dwelling in Ontario in the summer and winter, and formed the basis for recommendations for an experimental procedure to be used in future research projects involving the testing of shading devices at CCHT.
