Chapter 1 Basics of Heat Transfer 1-138 The range of U-factors for windows are given. The range for the rate of heat loss through the window of a house is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat losses associated with the infiltration of air through the cracks/openings are not considered. Analysis The rate of heat transfer through the window can be determined from ) ( window overall window out in T T A U Q = where T i and T o are the indoor and outdoor air temperatures, respectively, U overall is the U-factor (the overall heat transfer coefficient) of the
