Trakya Glass’ innovative glass units improve energy efficiency in buildings
Buildings in Europe account for 40% of the energy consumption where most of this energy consumption is for heating and air conditioning systems. Although having a relatively small surface area, windows are responsible for 30% of heat loss from the building envelope.
IG units incorporating high performance low E coated glasses of Sisecam and its Bulgarian entity Trakya Glass Bulgaria are the most effective way to improve energy performance of a window. They provide effective heat insulation and reduction in heating expenses by decreasing heat loss up to 80% when compared to single glazing and up to 60% when compared to standard IG unit.
Depending on the climatic conditions and the insulation properties of the building envelope, replacing standard IG units with high performance low E coated IG units in an apartment having 15 sqm of window area, provide savings approximately 8-10% on the heating bills as heat loss is considerably reduced.
For certain geographical regions, besides heat insulation, solar control is needed. IG units with high performance solar low E coated glasses of Sisecam and its Bulgarian entity Trakya Glass Bulgaria provide solar control as well. In addition to the effective heat insulation properties they provide solar control and reduction in cooling expenses by decreasing solar heat gains up to 45% when compared to standard IG units.
Besides improving energy efficiency of a building, IG units incorporating Trakya Glass’ high performance low E and solar low E coated glass contribute to environmental protection as well.
IG units incorporating Trakya Glass’ high performance low E and solar low E coated glass will be displayed at the company’s stand at “3rd Int. Exhibition for Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Sources 2008”. Low-ironed patterned glass used in solar thermal systems and photovoltaics for energy generating applications will also be displayed.
Furthermore, Sisecam and its Bulgarian entity Trakya Glass Bulgaria will make a presentation at the “4th Int. Congress for Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy Sources 2008” related with the above mentioned topics.
