Making Fenestration Part of your Overall Energy Management Plan
This presentation will outline the impact of energy efficient fenestration in commercial buildings, the opportunities for new construction and full fenestration retrofits, and how you can make fenestration part of an overall energy efficiency plan that meets code requirements.
Attendees will learn about the importance of product certification in fenestration and how it affects building energy consumption and comfort.
Attendees will identify the key factors to consider when selecting fenestration or considering a replacement for a building, such as window-to-wall ratio, certified product performance ratings, and climate zone.
Attendees will understand the role of fenestration in regulating heat, light, and air exchange between the interior conditioned environment and the outdoor environmental factors.
Attendees will learn about the potential energy savings and increased occupancy comfort that can be achieved through the adoption of energy-efficient commercial fenestration with certification in commercial buildings.
