Windows U- and G-value influence : Double glazing to triple glazing (English)
Abstract [en]

A majority of our lifetime is spent indoors, as such, the quality of a house has a significant impact on our

health. Standards and the way of living is different around the globe, for instance people living in colder

climates typically spend more of their time indoors while people living in warmer climates choose to do

the opposite. In addition to the house being safe, it should also protect us from pollution, sunrays, heat

and cold weather.

The core of this essay will highlight how different window types influence aspects of energy, environment

and economy. Windows contributes to energy loss due to their high U-values. The focus of this thesis will

cover the U – value respectively G – value’s impact on a window’s energy saving as well as the capacity of

energy saved that can be achieved by a double glass window as well as a triple glass window.

Building a house in Sweden requires you to follow the restrictions. A house built in Sweden must fulfill

the Swedish standards i.e. Planning Building Regulation (BBR) and simultaneously the regulations and

Planning and Building Act (PBL) need to be satisfied. The project planning and design phase are hence a

result of these measures.

The essay will furthermore provide details on how to attain an eye-catching house with modern standards

at a practical price.
