The Inside Outside Guys ~ See the Light with the Right Windows and Coverings
From The Detroit News | By Ken Calverley and Chuck Breidenstein
DETROIT, April 13, 2023 ~ Windows and window dressings have a long and interesting history in homes and buildings. It was a gamble to place any opening in the thermal envelope centuries ago when increased exposure to changing weather and loss of security were genuine risks. Narrow horizontal slits covered in oilskins were often used more to fend off potential attacks than to allow enjoyment of the landscape.
Placing glass windows on all four sides of a house was an acknowledgement of our prosperity in the late 1800s, but it came at a cost: literally. As recently as 1929, Sears advertised SealAir storm windows claiming they could save 30% on your annual heating demand of 10 tons of coal at $90 per year. Steel frames and sashes made it possible to incorporate large, ventilating windows in factories and homes.
