Thermal assessment of internal shutters and window film applied to traditional single glazed sash and case windows.
This report examines two inexpensive methods for improving the thermal performance of single glazed sash and case windows; the use of insulated shutters, and a window film applied to the existing panes. Both techniques were trialled at Wee Causeway, a detached 18th century cottage in Culross, with the success of each approach analysed in relation to thermal transmittance measurements taken in-situ, together with those calculated using proprietary software programmes.
