Seeing Clearly with Modern Windows

As the winter months continue to impress their power upon us – and on a completely unrelated note, I’m thinking a nice long visit to our Australian offices is long overdue – it’s only natural that our minds turn to ways we can keep the heat in. While home improvements in the dead of winter may not be the most popular choice, necessity sometimes wins out. It’s cold here in Atlantic Canada, and the time for new windows is at hand!

When building or renovating with heating, cooling, and efficiency in mind, a building’s “envelope” is of paramount importance. A structure’s outer shell, shielding the interior from what lies beyond, the envelope includes such elements as the roof, walls, foundation, and floors. All of these features can be made “greener” in myriad ways – yet, at the end of the day, the installation of windows is sadly akin to punching giant holes in that envelope. Of course, nobody wants to live in a dark, windowless box, and in any case, unless you’re working with a new build, you may not have much choice in the size, number, and placement of windows. I know I’m not about to start bricking up my view, my sunlight, or my fresh air.
