ABSTRACT

The package of measures aiming at thermal rehabilitation of blocks of flats in Romania
included also the glazing of loggias and balconies, transforming them into greenhouse
space.
Effectiveness of these measures in terms of energy savings and maximizing comfort is
different in various situations, determined by the geometry, orientation and area of
glazed facade, on one hand, and by a number of constructive factors such as quality of
glazing from the point of view of level of thermal insulation and solar factor, thermal
resistance of opaque area that separates the heated space from the green space area and
thermal resistance the parapet.
This paper presents the results of a study that had been aimed at determining the weight
of each of these factors that interfere in the amount of energy needs for heating the
space which is adjacent to the greenhouse area. For this purpose, it was used the
technique of factorial plan of experience with 2 levels. The study is based on the results
of some analysis carried out previously for buildings in operation.
