DOE Showcases "Super" Window Results
By Matt Power |
The DOE has made the reVision house retrofit part of its optimal case studies of how to upgrade energy efficiency in an existing home.
They've just released a concise PDF (available HERE) breaking down all of the energy improvements in the home under the Builders Challenge banner. One product that "shined" especially in the final analysis were Milguard's fiberglass triple-glazed windows.
The reVISION project renovated an 1,800 sq. ft ranch house built in 1963 from top to bottom with energy efficient materials. The resulting home is more than 60 percent more efficient, yet retains much of the popular "retro" look of the period.
