Insolation in the uk

  1. May 17, 2009 #1
    I am doing a few calcs regarding heat gain through windows and I am looking fot some typical values to apply for vertical surface NSE&W.
    I currently have figures from a glass manufacturer, a net based calculator and the BRE standar assesment proceedure ( for energy rating houses).
    All three are wildly different with the net based one looking most likely , but does anyone know of any standards or models that can provide a reliable figure I can use.
    many thanks in advance

    I am leaning further to the net based calculator now.
    But does anyone have any knowledge of gain figures or any idea where to find them
