Heat loss calculus: solar heated siding and air space
I would like to discuss about the implications on heat loss calculations of temperature of exterior finish and its different layers (notably air space) and its effect on the delta T .
I have not found much info using the search, rather some mentions about the effect etc.. Maybe I am not using the correct terms to look it up?
So basically, when we are calculating the heat loss of an area using HDD or simply a specific time delta T, how is it affected?
A dark grey finish with a 3/4 air space under it should get pretty hot during day time when the sun is shining high…
can this be used to our advantage?
it is used in some calculators automatically?
Lastly, it comes to mind that one could use this to help with heat loss on any ~south oriented walls in north climates?
