NCAP - Making the Most of Low-e Storm Windows and Smart HVAC Tools
The U.S Department of Energy has two technology campaigns that could revolutionize weatherization work: the Storm Window and Insulating Panel (SWIP) Campaign and the Smart Tools for Efficient HVAC Performance (STEP) Campaign. Modern, high-efficiency storms are a cost-effective alternative to full window replacement at a fraction of the cost – providing air sealing, thermal insulation, noise reduction, and other benefits. Smart diagnostic tools identify energy-wasting faults in residential HVAC systems by pairing a suite of digital gauges with a smart phone. Both the SWIP and STEP campaigns are national platforms to share information and recognize successes among campaign partners. In this webinar, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory staff will describe how to implement these technologies in your work.
