Thermal performance of secondary glazing as a retrofit alternative for single-glazed windows

Thermal performance of secondary glazing as a retrofit alternative for single-glazed windows Highlights ► Four secondary-glazing systems were used on a single-glazed, aluminium-frame window. ► Systems were plastic film, acrylic sheet, and aluminium-framed glass (plain and low-E). ► Thermal resistance was measured using a guarded hot box. ► Film (140% improvement), acrylic (150%) and plain glass (130%) gave similar results. ► Low-E glass gave 290% improvement (0.15 m 2 K/W increased to 0.57 m 2 K/W). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Energy and Buildings Elsevier

Abstract

Highlights ► Four secondary-glazing systems were used on a single-glazed, aluminium-frame window. ► Systems were plastic film, acrylic sheet, and aluminium-framed glass (plain and low-E). ► Thermal resistance was measured using a guarded hot box. ► Film (140% improvement), acrylic (150%) and plain glass (130%) gave similar results. ► Low-E glass gave 290% improvement (0.15 m 2 K/W increased to 0.57 m 2 K/W).
