What

We have a large energy bill, a lot of heat disappears through our current windows (see FLIR pics), so it would be good to do something about this.

Polycarbonate sheets

W can get (free?) polycarbonate sheets via Pokon. They could be mounted against the existing glass windows. Approx measurements 205 x 125 cm.

Glass

Alternatively we could consider buying HR+++ triple glass for instance here https://www.dubbelglas.nu/isolatieglas/triple/energie/. qjb talked about http://elkimi.nl/, they can deliver and install glass for a good price.

Subsidies

A short investigation into options to subsidize the project can be found here isolation-subsidies.

Measurements

Main room

Measurements below are in centimeters, and are the desired size of the boards to be installed. These are obviously slightly larger than the actual glass surface they will be covering to account for attachment surface.

Left and right are from the viewpoint inside the space, not from the street.

1

68 x 173

  • cut and mounted \o/

2

103 x 173

  • cut and mounted \o/

3

67 x 173

  • cut and mounted \o/

4

68 x 127

  • cut and mounted \o/

5

123 x 169

  • cut and mounted \o/

6

47 x 60

  • cut and mounted \o/

7

59 x 106

  • cut and mounted \o/

Printer corner

Measurements are of the glass, so sheets need to be somewhat larger. We need to take those measurements again.

Large window

  • 193x164 plz check

Door

  • 119x59 plz check

Small window

  • 43x71 plz check
  • With fan, so we need to cut out a bit

Hallway

Measurements are of the glass, so sheets need to be somewhat larger. We need to take those measurements again.

Door

  • 71.5 x 102 (checked, it's true!)

Window above door

  • 45x91 plz check

Tool room

Measurements are of the glass, so sheets need to be somewhat larger. We need to take those measurements again.

Lower window right

  • 116x65 cut, needs to be mounted

Upper window right

  • 47x58 cut, needs to be mounted

Large window

  • 244x165 plz check

Lower window left

  • 96x52 plz check

Upper window left

  • 53x62 plz check
  • With fan, so a part needs to be cut out

Game room

Measurements are of the glass, so sheets need to be somewhat larger. We need to take those measurements again.

Large window side

  • 145x257 plz check

Window above door

  • 54x85 cut and mounted \o/

Door

  • 59x122 plz check

Large window front

  • 165x225 plz check

Upper small window

  • 48x54 plz check

Lower small window

  • 62x118 plz check

List of steps to undertake

(Simple mockup for now!)

1: measure window dimensions (incl mounting size)

1a: if not sufficient material present: get it to the space and add some headroom.

2: make sure for sufficient work area to do the other steps

3: cut isolation sheets to size after size confirmation (tip: try to make efficient use of the sheets)

4: test fit the sheets

5: pre drill holes in the sheets with foil still attached

6: clean the needed windows to be free of any debris (and fat fingers!)

7: apply the glue in prepariation

8: remove top portion (10cm or so) of the foil and align it with the window

9: screw in the top row of screws

10: slowly pull more foil off from top to bottom (remove stains if created in the progress)

11: now screw the rest of the screws in (top to bottom)

12: once done, remove the other foil coating (faceing building inside)

13: tidy it up?
