Is a measure of thermal transmittance through a building component usually a roof, wall, window, door, or floor. The U-value multiplied by the area of the component gives the rate of energy (heat) loss through the component per unit of temperature difference between inside and outside air temperatur...

(thermal transmittance co-efficient) basically, a measurement of heat loss. Technically, it is calculated on the rate at which heat transfers through 1m2 of a structure where the temperature difference between the inner and outer face is 1 degree C. The lower the...

A measure of air-to-heat transmission (loss or gain) due to the thermal conductance and the difference in indoor and outdoor temperatures. As the U-value decreases, so does the amount of heat that is transferred through the glazing material. The lower the U-value, the more restrictive the fenestrati...
