Building America Webinar: Low-E Storms: The Next Big Thing in Window Retrofits

September 9, 2014 5:00PM to 6:30PM EDT

Until recently, energy-efficient window retrofit options have largely been limited to repair or replacement; leaving the homeowner to decide between affordability and deeper energy savings.  A new and improved low-e storm window boasts a combination of curb appeal and energy efficiency, all for a fraction of the cost of window replacement.  A recent whole-home experiment performed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) suggests that attaching low-e storm windows can result in as much energy savings as replacing the windows!

Presenters include:
• Thomas Culp is the owner of Birch Point Consulting, LLC, which provides engineering and strategic consulting services in the areas of energy efficient window performance, building code development, glass performance, and glass coatings. In this webinar, Tom will discuss the development of low-e storm windows and examples of success stories where they are used today.
• Sarah Widder, PNNL, focuses on sustainable design, energy efficiency, and greenhouse gas management. Ms. Widder is currently involved in using whole building performance metrics to analyze the impact and effectiveness of current sustainable design trends. In this webinar, Sarah will provide step-by-step instructions for how to install low-e storm windows over existing windows.
