Higher-Performance Windows and Glazing
In this 4th installment of our Higher-Performance series, we’ll take a deeper dive into key components that impact the energy performance of fenestration. We’ll cover windows and storefronts for residential and small commercial projects for the Central Coast climate. Learning objectives:
- Identify strategies for selecting and locating windows and glazing to reduce glare and improve energy efficiency
- Learn the latest window and glass technologies that impact solar heat gain, thermal bridging, and visible light transmittance
- Be able to incorporate critical detailing and specifications to integrate with a higher performance envelope
- Understand window operability options and the impacts on ventilation and indoor air quality.
