This paper deals with an outcome of long-term experimental measurement of windows suitable for low-energy or zero houses. Three different windows are evaluated since 2011 in the Laboratory of the Department of Building Engineering and Urban Planning, Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Zilina. All windows have implemented triple glazing, but with various frame type. Two frames are made from plastic and one from wood. The plastic frames differ from each other with use of thermal insulation inside one of mentioned frames. The test room has adjustable indoor boundary conditions and is exposed to real outdoor climate conditions measured through the own detached experimental weather station. Temperatures and heat fluxes are continuously measured on glazings and frames. This paper compares the windows by the requirements of Slovak standard on the inner surface temperatures and differences of the thermal transmittance for glazing and sash.
