The entry of daylight into the interiors depends on the orientation of windows, size of thewindows, time of the day, as well as weather conditions. The position of the blinds alsoadds to the above factors to allow day light inside. The illuminance inside a room variesthroughout the day depending on the above factors. The introduction of daylight insidethe room also aids to increase in temperature inside the room, which hinders the thermal comfort of the user inside the room. Thermal comfort can be achieved by installing AirConditioner (AC) inside the room. But due to the excessive heat inside, the energy consumption increases to maintain the thermal comfort. This paper deals with thevarious measures taken to reduce the energy consumption. These values are then fed into a fuzzy logic controller to get the optimum result.
