- 20% of heat is lost through the roof so we use loft insulation. This is fibre glass, air gets trapped and air is a good insulator.
- 12% of heat is lost through windows so we use double glazing, either dry air or a vacuum is between the two layers. dry air reduces heat loss through conduction and a vacuum reduces loss from convection as well.
- 4% of heat is…
