Scope

When employees and visitors to a Suffolk County, NY courthouse complained of severe coldness in the winter and overbearing heat in the summer, it was clear that something must be done with the windows on the south side of this building.

Goal

CHB Industries’ goal with this project was to make this courthouse more comfortable and to come up with a cost-effective solution to reducing heating and air-conditioning bills. After an analysis, it was clear that the problems were associated with gaps in the windows frames, allowing air to permeate into the building.

Achievement

CHB researched a wide range of solutions and determined that the installation of a unique an innovative product – Indo Windows – would solve the dilemma. Rather than recommend the very expensive replacement of windows, CHB recommended this product which features the installation of interior “window inserts” which, along with custom built frames, are fitted over existing windows. The new framing and panes cover the gaps in windows, thereby sealing the gaps and preventing the drafts which compromised the integrity of the building. The results have been significant savings on heating and air conditioning bills and a comfortable work environment. This solution came at a fraction of the cost of installing new windows.
