Despite technological progress, the window and its most important component – double glazing – is the weakest insulating link of the entire building envelope.At the Technology University of Kielce, research has begun on improving the insulation of double glazing through the use of heating elements in the inner chamber between the panes, creating the so-called thermal barrier. The focus of the article is to show the possibility of increasing the temperature of the glazing unit, to carry out numerical and experimental analysis, to assess the energy balance, assuming that the thermal barrier will be powered by renewable energy.
