Green windows save heating costs for homeowners
Apex Energy Solutions estimates that its line of replacement windows have saved Central Indiana residents an estimated 465 billion BTUs, or the equivalent of more than 3 million gallons of heating oil.
Based in Zionsville, Ind., Apex has launched a new version of its Insignia e2 window series.
With standard triple-pane technology and proprietary components, the Insignia e2 window series exceeds current industry standards for energy efficiency and durability.
Like the previous versions, the Insignia e2 window frame is made entirely from uPVC resins, which reduce energy consumption with superior weather-sealing and thermal-efficiency properties.
In addition, the window employs energy-efficient low-expansion foam, and Apex installs its windows with a proprietary caulk to ensure an airtight fit. The windows themselves are made of recyclable materials, meaning scraps from the production process can be reused.
Apex windows are available in 14 markets in 12 states, and the company plans to expand to 30 cities by 2014.
Michael Foit, president and founder of Apex Energy Solutions, estimates that each home the company services saves the equivalent of nearly 300 gallons of heating fuel every year.
