“Window awnings are used to shelter windows from sun and heat, control light and glare, for privacy, and for aes-thetics. Stationary awnings are fixed in place and provide shade over windows or other openings.”
“LEED® Rating System Fact Sheet: Opportunities for Awnings and Solar Shades”
Window awnings can reduce solar heat gain in the summer by up to 65% on south-facing windows and 77% on west-facing windows. You can use an awning to shade one window or have an awning custom-made to shade the entire side of your house.
