Heat in a space during cold weather. There are various methods of reducing the heat loss through windows. The problem is that they are expensive and as they reduce the light transmission the optimum area increases. Several layers Several layers of glass with gas between the layers reduces the heat transmission. Heat is transmitted across the cavity by long-wave (blackbody) radiation at the glass temperature. Internally silvered glass also cuts off the flow of light and is not useful. Coatings with low emissivity to long-wave radiation and which are nearly transparent to light are applied.
