Retrofit insulated window shutters are examined. An initial investigation reveals that internal shutters are more viable in this context. Condensation is identified as a potential risk. Extensive investigations using modelling software as well as site and laboratory experiments are described which demonstrate that this risk is low. The thermal effectiveness of internal shutters is modelled and laboratory tested.
