Does entrapped air increase or decrease U-values?
Reducing heat loss in the winter helps to conserve energy. When using textile coverings for this purpose, installation is a key factor. Is it better to install linings to be tight to entrap dead air between fabric and glass or increase the fullness of lining and drapery to minimize amt of warm air drawn against window?
install linings to be tight to entrap dead air between the fabric and the glass.
