Abstract: 

Windows, as elements connecting built and natural environment, play an important role in providing internal comfort. During winter, solar heat gain through windows reduces heating demand, heating load and energy consumption of the building. On the other hand, it increases cooling load in summer. Hence, using blinds is common in office buildings to control solar radiation. Although using blinds prevents part of the solar radiation from entering the space, simultaneously, it improves comfort conditions for the employees. It should be mentioned that an appropriate control of blinds, regarding changes in external and internal environmental conditions, will lead to a decrease of energy consumption and discomfort caused by direct solar radiation.. In this paper, the use of blinds on windows is simulated for cardinal orientations and different blind angles and positions. Finally, the total thermal load of the space and the amount of glare is studied. According to the results, blinds have a significant impact on spaces total load, as well as reduction of interior glare compared to the reference case with no blinds.
