Window insulation panels save energy (English)
Abstract [en]

In Sweden, one-third of total energy consumption is used for the running and heating of buildings, which is quite a lot. By

implementing energy efficiency in existing buildings one can cut energy use, and thereby provide huge savings. Energy efficiency

can be done in various ways, for instance by installing solar panels, solar cells or by sealing and insulating the building

envelope. The cost depends on and vary between these different measures, and they also provide different effects. Even when the

aforementioned measures have been implemented, one can not get away from the fact that one square meter of window leaks as

much as ten square meter of the wall. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the possibility to reduce energy consumption

through the windows by using vacuum insulation panels, and thereby reduce the house's transmission losses. The vacuum

insulation panel will only be used six hours a day, during the night between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m.

We achieved our purpose by making calculations in an energy calculation software named VIP-Energy, and also manually

(by hand). Our conclusion is that savings can be made. These savings are about ten percent of all transmission losses, thus it

is possible to save 47,5 kilowatt hours per square meter, window and year by installing vacuum insulation panels over the

windows.
