Building Dimensions:
Percentage of Windows: %

Percentage of Balconies: %

Thermally Broken Balconies?(*):

Wall R-Value: m2K/W

Window U-Value: W/m2K

annual heat losses:

Savings from the use of thermal breaks in balconies:

(*) the following typical linear transmittance values may be used, if no project specific ones are available
  • Linear transmittance of conventional (unbroken) balconies = W/mK

  • Linear transmittance of thermally broken balconies = W/mK
