Passive building windows are designed to improve energy efficiency in buildings by reducing heat loss and gain. These windows are characterized by their high performance and use of advanced technologies, such as triple glazing and low-E glass. Proper orientation and shading of windows is crucial in passive solar design to optimize the use of natural light and heat. Passive daylighting strategies also play a role in maximizing the use of natural light in a building. Passive house windows have a long lifespan and can significantly reduce energy use when properly installed.
