Windows are considered the weakest thermal link in a building envelope for heat gain in summer & heat loss in winter. Although windows present a small part of a building's total surface area, windows have a much greater effect on heat flow than
walls, ceilings, or floors.
Below are the steps (in more or less the proper order by decreasing cost-effectiveness) to minimize solar heat gain/loss so you can save kWh/BTUs & $$$ on your energy bills while helping slow-down climate change!:
(IF NEW construction, take advantage of passive solar design by orienting the building's LONGER axis (or roof's ridgeline) running east to west to limit more windows facing the rising & setting sun)
#1: Have properly-oversized roof overhangs &or window awnings. If you're in South Florida, check-out retractable awnings by royalscreensolutions.com.

#2: Consider planting climate region-compatible vegetation/landscaping in front of east- & west-facing windows. For a worldwide provider of food forests & edible landscape designs & installations , check-out: FoodForestAbundance.com/?ref=Eat4Earth
#3: Install exterior “Bahama” shutters or more permanent exterior solar shade screens. If you're in South Florida, check-out motorized screens installed by: RoyalScreenSolutions.com. Tell their owner, Adam Bator, when emailing him at: [email protected] or calling him at 305.771.3864 that you were referred by Danny Zen for a FREE quote & possible discount
#4: Apply a low-emissivity coating if your windows didn't come w/ it
#5: If you have just single-pane or extremely old & energy-INefficient windows, consider replacing your windows entirely w/ ultra high-performing, Passive House-quality ones that are double- or triple-paned & argon gas-filled
