This diagram from the U.S. Department of Energy shows how a roof overhang can prevent hot summer sun from getting in. Here, the summer sun's angles are directed at the ground.But that same smartly oriented overhang can also allow maximum light during the winter, as shown, when you want that extra bit of heat.Diagram via DOE Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy
