Paper Abstract

To obtain an acceptable comfort degree is a common practice to use a conventional air conditioning systems as radiators and coolers. However, they suppose high energy costs and are directly associated with some occupational diseases. We propose an alternative method to get comfort using a window galleria to take advantage of solar radiation. We have made a complete study of solar radiation in order to characterize the building. Results show us that we can achieve comfort levels without resorts to conventional systems.
