Are your old windows causing increased energy costs? Replacing your historic windows with replacement windows is a travesty, but up until now there have been no real inexpensive options towards ‘retrofitting’ an energy efficient solution that didn’t also mar the visual impact of your historic building.
Advanced Energy Panels allow you to keep the historic look, save the most money, and keep your building in comfort.
If your historic building has older windows with only a single thickness of glass… the ambient heat from the outside will tax your heating and air conditioning. Windows account for almost half of a building’s heat gain on hot days, and when it reaches over 90 degrees, air conditioning costs can increase over well 30%.
If your building has aluminum “storm windows”, such as these common triple track units… you know they leak like a sieve. Their tracks are loose, their weather seals are nonexistent or long gone, and the “weep holes” at the bottom, which are designed to let water out, actually let ambient air in.
If you have metal window frames… the frames conduct more heat and cold into your building than what is going through the glass. Just touch the bare metal to see for yourself.
If you’ve tried curtains or sticking up temporary sheets of plastic. You realize that although curtains are attractive, you can’t see through them and your natural light is minimized. And the sheets of plastic don’t work well, are messy, spoil your view, ruin your woodwork, and are less efficient.
Keep your old wooden windows. They are sturdier and, with proper maintenance, will last much longer than the light duty or vinyl plastic construction used today. Advanced Energy Panel interior window insulating panels will bring your old windows up to Energy Star® efficiency levels for a small fraction of the cost of replacement windows.
