Did you know that leaky windows are noisier than high-performance windows? It's true! Sound readily travels through air, so when you have a high-performance, air-tight window, this blocks out unwanted noise.

Ask us about the results our clients have been experiencing and how quiet their homes are.

Take a close look at this architectural detail—two-toned windows. Our client and the architect, Michael Grant, approached us with the idea of having dark window frames and lighter-toned exterior frame extensions, creating a "popping" effect for the windows.

📍 Location: Sisters, OR
Architecture Firm: EdgeHouse Green Design
Windows: Alpen Zenith 725 series with dark bronze windows and almond 3.25" frame extensions.

It was great seeing this PH feature by Rocky Mountain PBS this summer👉 Leading the way in building high-performance and fire-resistant homes. PBS interviewed our friend, Andrew Michler, owner of Colorado's first certified Passive House.

“[We] make the buildings as airtight as we can, protecting occupants from outdoor poor air or even protecting from things like moisture and rot,” Andrew Michler said to Rocky Mountain PBS. "The Passive House was designed to both reduce energy, but to also improve the comfort of the occupants.”

Have you heard about the new 🎙️ podcast: Better Buildings, Better Society? Check out episode number TWO (The Power of a Hair Dryer) with Todd and Steven from DMA Engineering.

Todd explains the reasons why the population is moving toward the Passive House design. Besides many municipalities now moving toward a Zero-Energy Ready direction, many others also realize that energy-efficient homes are quieter, more comfortable, and longer-lasting in addition to environmentally friendly. With building codes improving over time, Todd recognizes there's a real opportunity for our society to move in a better direction for generations to come.

Tune in to Better Buildings, Better Society for a conversation with Todd and Steven about passive house. Learn more about Passive Houses' environmental and quality benefits, and Todd's advice to those considering building a home.
