AbstractThe inside surface temperature behavior of a window in cold weather affects the comfort of the building occupants and determines the resistance of the window to condensation. In windows containing sealed double-glazing units, the surface temperature behavior of the inner pane also affects its resistance to thermal breakage. The surface temperature performance of a sealed double-glazed window is affected by the design of the sealed unit itself and of the window frame. It is also affected by factors external to the window, such as the room heater configuration and the arrangement of the indoor shading device. The effects of these last two factors on the surface temperature performance of a sealed double-glazed window were investigated in laboratory tests and are herein reported.
