NET ZERO: THE DESIRED OUTCOME OF A MID-RISE NEW OR RETROFIT
Thermally insulated door and window systems of the Janisol series in steel or stainless steel impress with excellent U values (thermal transmittance) and feature narrow face widths. The Janisol series is suitable for dry and wet glazing, while the door systems are also available with easy-access thresholds. Whether in public buildings, residential construction or renovation projects, the wide Janisol range with its differentiated, combinable profile series will meet the most demanding of requirements for thermal insulation. The Janisol systems are also at the forefront in terms of security, mechanical strength and durability. More details on Janisol Arte 66
IQ RADIANT GLASS®
Hybrid solutions for heat and light control paired with the magic and thermal comfort of radiant heating glass, Each window unit becomes it's own heat zone all under the control of the building AI system, Individually controlled heated glass with 95% efficiency in projecting radiant heat to the interior in areas where needed, when needed. No heated air convecting to the ceiling. No dust, No airborne pathogens, No mold. The building becomes a refuge for those suffering from asthma or seasonal airborne allergies. There is no damp or condensation.
QUEBEC HYDRO STUDY
In areas where heating requirements are significant, an innovative solution exists to counter the physical discomforts caused by windows – electrically heated windows. At first sight, installing heated windows would somehow appear not to make sense from an energy standpoint since the initial perception is to think about the energy consumed by a heated window as being dissipated towards the outdoors. In order to examine the effects of an electrically heated window on a building's energy needs, a model was developed and validated. The model is applicable to both conventional and heated windows. Compared to standard double-glazed windows, the model reveals that using heated windows actually reduces the space heating and cooling loads. It also increases the thermal comfort in a building's perimeter zone by preventing cold temperatures on the indoor side of the window from occurring. On the other hand, compared to energy-efficient double pane windows, the results demonstrate a slight increase in the space heating load but a decrease in the needs for air conditioning. Furthermore, in cold climates and from an energy standpoint only, the results demonstrate that it is more advantageous to install a heated window on the north and east (or west) walls of a building as opposed to the south because, among other things, the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of a heated window is lower than that of windows normally used in the building sector.
Radiant heat is silent. Gone are hot air or steam generating furnaces. Floor space is reclaimed and floor vents and radiators are gone allowing for liberty in furniture placements. Complaints about areas too hot or too cold are MIA.
Entire mechanical systems are made redundant along with the costs and labor required to maintain them. All of this is possible using off the shelf technology and proven window systems. We are ready to work with you. Let's discuss your project.
