What is better, a high or low shading coefficient?

In colder, heating-dominated climates such as Canada or the northern United States, windows with higher shading coefficients generally are preferred and conserve energy due to the fact that in the longer heating season, more solar radiation, which becomes “free” heat, is allowed to pass into a home.

In the south, with a long air-conditioning season, it is most important to reduce solar gain and therefore reduce air conditioning loads.
