Abstract
In residential and commercial buildings, heat from the sun can enter by radiation through walls, roof and windows. Radiation refers to the mechanism in which the internal energy of an object is emitted in the form of heat without requiring a transfer medium. Traditionally, curtains and coloured glass have been mainly used for windows to reduce the amount of sunlight that enters the unit. This also helps to reduce the amount of heat that passes through. In this article, windows of different colours are studied for their effectiveness in filtering heat via radiation. As windows made of a certain colour only allow the colour to pass through, selecting windows of appropriate colour will also allow for optimum heat insulation and light penetration.
