Windows on Pennsylvania's Weatherization Priority List

Posted by Webmaster on 15. April 2011 16:17

Pennsylvania has been a leader in including window retrofits in its weatherization programs. A recent analysis of 37 homes across four PA cities (Scranton, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia) using the National Energy Audit Tool (NEAT) weatherization software developed by Oak Ridge National Lab showed that low-e storm windows yielded a savings:investment ratio substantially higher than 1 in all cases. As a result, Pennsylvania now includes high performance windows as part of their priority list for weatherization. Analysis support continues in other states and we hope to bring you more news and future priority list updates!

    It was thrilling to purchase our new house six months ago. We rushed by means of inspection and didn't take the time to really inspect the house. Had we done so, we would have realized that the windows necessary to be replaced. By now I'm certain that you simply could guess, we bought the home. That is when we had to begin educating ourselves about which <a href="http://www.windowsbyprestige.com">Denver window company</a> that would provide us with high quality replacement windows. Our first expertise having a sales person from a Denver Window business was not what we thought it would be. It was an extremely high pressure sales pitch, and needless to say, we did not appreciate it whatsoever. Thanks to posts like this, we learned a great deal about replacing our windows and we were able to create a very solid decision. Thank you for taking the time to post this. I just wanted to let you understand how beneficial your posts really are.!
