What width should soffit overhangs be in order to use oreintation specific glazing?
What is the minimum industry standard for the width of soffit overhangs in order to take advantage of orientation specific glazing for both triple pane windows and slider/patio doors located on the south side of a house? Although I want to take advantage of passive solar heating, I do not wnat the house to be overheated in the summertime. I would like the soffit overhangs to provide adequate shading during the summer here in Connecticut.
