Noise and thermal insulation

How do I improve my thermal insulation?

Beyond good thermal insulation glass, double glazing window needs something else to reach its optimum efficiency. Thermal bridges are created when heat is conducted through materials that are poor insulators.

A thermal bridge in a window will mean that heat will be lost from the room to the outside and that cold will pass from the exterior into the room. This could be caused, for example, by an aluminium spacer bar acting as a heat conductor between the inner and the outer pane of a double glazing window. As well as loosing energy, thermal bridges can cause cold spots or drafts near the double glazing window.
A thermal break is an insulating material designed to prevent against the thermal bridging effect. Warm edge spacer bars act as a thermal break and reduce the thermal bridge effect between the two glass panels of a double glazing window.
