|In our homes, every kilowatt of energy we use for heating and cooling can create up to two pounds of carbon dioxide. Compared to older or less efficient systems, energy efficient Envirosealed windows create less CO2, which reduces their environmental impact and your carbon footprint.|
Look at the numbers: They tell the story. A single home installed with Envirosealed windows and doors may reduce carbon dioxide emission by up to 1,600 pounds per year and up to 16 tons over 20 years. And if every American home had the highest efficiency warm edge spacers, as provided by Duralite® insulating technology, harmful CO2 release would be reduced by 56 million tons. The planet would thank us; so would future generations.
Envirosealed windows also interact with a helpful gas: argon gas, which can improve your window's insulating properties. But to do that, it needs to stay in the window. The Duralite spacers are designed to seal your window better and longer, keeping the argon gas in while keeping the moisture out.
