The fact is that the installation of windows are through them has been made poorly or incorrectly: somewhere the windows are bad-quality, – commented specialist of the Center for Environmental Solutions Vladimir Rak. – That is why we recommend pay attention to the installation phase. Many of the institutions can make another simple steps: for example, put heat recovery screens behind batteries, etc.
