Abstract

A programme to evaluate the performance of glazed roof spaces of varying pitches fitted with a solar blind and phase change storage materials has been completed. The performance was measured over the heating period October 1982 to April 1983 and operated in conjunction with a gas boiler as a backup for space heating. The best performance of 50.5 kWhr m**-2 was obtained from a glazed conservatory (i.e. 90 degrees pitch) fitted with a solar blind and a phase change material store.
