Formulation of the problem. Nowadays, the current problem becomes the continuous increasing of the energy cost for the population. Efficient technologies will help minimize heat losses inside the building and save money. In developed countries, there are already a lot of examples of zero-energy buildings, one of the main aspects of which are energy-conservative high-performance translucent structures. Purpose. Experimentally, based on the thermograms, to prove the expediency of application of double glazing metal-plastic windows in comparison with one-frame windows. The technique. Carrying out shooting with a thermographic camera, as well as performing calculations of thermal conductivity of enclosure translucent metal-plastic structures of two types for wide use - one-frame and dual screen frame with an air layer of 200 mm using the “Elcut 5” software package. Results. There are some insignificant differences in the results of the thermographic camera in the statement of temperature values compared with the calculated values obtained in the PC “Elcut”. This can be explained by the imperfection of the software package, as well as by the uncertainty of the determination of the surface temperature by the thermographic camera. Conclusions. The application of double glazing metal-plastic windows in comparison with the one-frame window increases the resistance to heat transfer, and thereby reduces heat losses. Double glazing metal-plastic translucent structures are energy-conservative, highly-efficient and low-budget thermally homogeneous enclosing structures, which, of course, are the best option these days.
