Heat loss through existing conventional residential windows accounts for around 47% of total energy loss from building fabric. Similarly, external walls have notably high overall heat transfer coefficients, resulting in significant increase in building energy consumption levels especially under extreme weather conditions. Today, there is a consensus among scientists that neither existing glazing technologies nor traditional insulation materials for external walls are capable of fulfilling… CONTINUE READING
