Natural daylight is better for people, does not require electric energy, and can actually reduce the first cost of an HVAC system.This presentation will use window-to-wall ratio, shading coefficient, ceiling design, lighting controls, and HVAC size savings to determine the effectiveness of daylighting strategies for a given architectural design.

Objectives

  • List at least five reasons to incorporate daylighting strategies in commercial building design
  • Evaluate window-to-wall ratio, shading coefficient, ceiling design, and lighting controls
  • Determine which daylighting strategies will be effective for a particular structure
  • Calculate reduced HVAC size for a specific daylit building
