PV Project Thermography - Comparison (5/20/98)

North Windows

This comparison shows the differences between the single pane windows installed on the control house and the double-pane argon filled windows in the PVRES house. The control house photographs were taken at about 1:30PM while the PVRES photographs were taken at about 12:30PM on the same day. In both cases the same temperature range was used by the IR camera. Note the lower wall temperature in the PVRES home (due to exterior insulation) and the lower glass and window frame temperature.

The temperature range is from 66°F (darkest colors) to 84°F (lightest colors).
