Let's talk over-insulating and inward opening!
European windows are often triple-paned or even quad-paned, making for even greater energy efficiency. They also open inward rather than cranking open to the exterior. As a result, they lend themselves easier to over-insulating techniques. The over-insulating techniques and materials are a natural fit for this style of window. Here, Todd demos just one version of our inward opening windows.


For even more details on over-insulating, check out our blog this month, Form AND Function Win Out When it Comes to European Windows & Over-Insulating. Link in bio!

The Passive House approach takes essentially all energy losses and gains into consideration. Commercial buildings see much larger savings with LEDs, but so do smaller residential projects. #NationalLEDLightDay

Todd met up with Taylor Mann from New Energy Home Group to discuss what AE Building Systems offers new homeowners. New Energy Home is a real estate group that focuses on energy-efficient properties in Colorado. Here's just a sneak peek into their conversation.   

Do you know what AE stands for? Todd explains the dual meaning.

In celebration of World Architecture Day (10/4), we spotlight our friends at Shape Architecture Studio. They have some cool things in the works, including this PassivHaus Hotel.

This 26-room boutique hotel in downtown Gunnison will be one of the first certified Passive House hotels in the US. It will include a marketplace/ bar/ cafe with a rooftop event and gathering space. Gunnison is the coldest town in the lower 48 states, so achieving Passive House certification will be especially rewarding.
