From making building occupants uncomfortable to putting stresses on HVAC systems, it can be a detriment to a building's performance. Perhaps the best way to control solar heat gain is with a daylighting system that offers built-in light diffusion, allowing for sunlight to brighten a space while keeping hot-spots at bay.
