How Hyperion effects HVAC:


Effect of Solar Shades
on Cooling Loads

Solar Adaptive Shading

Effective shade control has a positive impact on reducing energy consumption, and contributes to the sustainability of a building.

Lower cooling costs

• Shades block and reflect direct sunlight during the day to reduce demand on air conditioning systems
• Shades provide maximum cooling benefit during summer afternoons to avoid periods of high demand when peak charges may apply.

Lower heating costs

Shades are lowered completely at night to provide an insulating barrier that keeps the building warmer during winter months

Enable effective daylight harvesting

People typically lower shades to limit the heat and glare experienced when direct sunlight is streaming into their workspace. Unfortunately, once shades have been lowered, they are rarely raised again to take advantage of good diffuse daylight at times of the day when the sun is high in the sky or indirect. Instead, overhead lighting is used – wasting electricity.

By combining effective daylight management with lighting systems that can automatically dim overhead lights — electric light usage can be lowered to conserve electricity every day. This has the added benefit of lowering HVAC usage to cool the additional heat generated by the lighting system.

Daylight management with Hyperion™

Daylight is an excellent source of light in the workplace but it presents challenges.

Uncontrolled daylight will result in glare and solar heat gain. Windows designed to bring daylight and views into the workplace can become a source of visual and thermal discomfort.

Daylight management is needed to control the intensity and quality of daylight entering a space. Lutron® shades are the perfect solution for managing daylight while preserving views.
