Abstract. We derive an expression for the heat flux through a window constructed with multiple panes of glass separated pairwise by air layers of a given thickness. We compute the relative heat loss reduction achieved in comparison to a window with no air gap and the same amount of glass. We examine how the relative heat loss reduction function behaves when we scale the number of panes up to a large value.
