Publisher Summary This chapter explains that the amount of operational energy required in a building can be reduced with a proper design. Nonresidential buildings have large glass areas, thus an office building has been chosen to carry out this study. Two different window elements have been considered: (1) shape—continuous horizontal window and discontinuous vertical window, both with the same surface; (2) type—colorless, bronze colored, and reflectant; each of them for insulating glass with different gap thickness and for single glass. The results of this analysis show the building energy consumptions in the heating and cooling seasons, which should be considered when the building is being designed.
