This week one of my crews has been installing the new Harvey Tribute windows in the new Energy Star home we’re building for a customer. This new line of windows from Harvey is a really great way to build green.
The Tribute window can be ordered with triple pane glass filled with krypton gas to achieve a U factor of 0.20! That means these windows are about 60% more efficient than the standard double pane argon gas filled windows that we typically use.
Some of you may argue that vinyl windows are not exactly green. However, I argue that these windows have almost zero maintenance (no painting) and the energy savings over time make them a serious improvement for the environment.
