Let the Daylighting In

24 January 2013

Us Minnesotans are familiar with those super sunny yet super cold winter days. Daylighting is a term used to describe the strategic use of sunlight for internal lighting and passive solar heat. Since most of us don’t have much of a choice where our windows are located, all that is involved to take advantage of daylighting is opening the blinds during the day. This will let in some solar heat ( nothing

So let the sunshine in! Hey, you might even forget that it is below freezing outside.

Tip: try to remember to close the shades once it is dark out. This will help block any cold drafts from blowing in at night.
