EnergyPlus Window Air Gap - [source code]

Use this component to create a custom material for a window air gap, which can be plugged into the "HoneybeeEnergyPlus Construction" component. It is important to note that this component only creates gaps of air and not other gasses. Also, the material out of this component represents only a single layer of air, which can be combined with the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Glass Material" to make multi-pane windows. If you have specifications for a whole window element and not individual panes of glass and gas, you are better-off using the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Window Material" component instead of this one. -
