Need specific scenarios by specifying the building type, geographic location, orientation, and window configuration. Users also specify size, shading, and thermal properties of the window along with other parameters (occupancy, lighting, equipment and HVAC schedules, etc.) required for energy and daylight simulation.
Evaluation and comparison of a range of facade configurations in order to understand the impact of different design variables on facade performance (energy consumption, daylighting and glare analysis, cost calculation, etc.)
COMFEN can help users pick the most energy-efficient and cost-effective window for a given application for Indian context. It calculates heating and cooling energy use and associated costs as well as peak heating and cooling demand for specific window products.
