Four windows better than groups of twos?
This may seem like a strange question… I have a 28′ south-facing wall. It will be 9 inches thick and filled with cellulose. It is a gable end and will require no headers. I’ve calculated that I need about 64.6 sq. ft. of glazing which came out to 4 41×57 Pella Proline double-hung, Natural Sun windows.
The question is, should I group them together as doubles or keep them spread evenly? And why? Better insulation when grouped? More solar gain when seperate?
The house is in northern New Hampshire.
