The paper studied the thermo-physical properties of the windows with self-adjustable jalousie and consequent cooling load reduction for the buildings in 60-degree North latitude throughout the year. We focused on using different types of innovative materials and window structures and specified possible ways of improvement for modern and conservative windows. The paper discussed main factors that induce choosing specific window type. First, we investigated quantity of solar radiation energy that is taken into account while calculating the cooling load. Then this dependence was analyzed with different scenarios for specific window structures facing to corresponding cardinal direction. The results provide useful information for optimizing the thermal response of an enclosure to periodic solar heat gains.
