With the Next Generation Ultimate Double Hung window, innovation has never looked or sounded better. It seamlessly combines Marvin's legendary craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology, without sacrificing the classic double hung look. The revolutionary, keeperless hardware system controls all aspects of the window's operation, and incorporates many industry firsts. A multi-point system locks automatically, even while open 4 inches in "vent mode." An audible "click" tells you the window is locked, for added peace of mind. Add on interior customization options like integrated interior shades, retractable screens, six stain options, various wood species, and you truly have a window that sets a new industry standard.
Net-zero homes, which generate more electricity over the course of a year than they use, are growing in popularity. Unlike other “green” building practices, an advantage of net-zero building is that there are no prescribed steps to reaching net-zero; it’s a quantitative measure of performance. When the inflow and outflow of electricity through the meter balance at the end of a year, net-zero is achieved.
While a house doesn’t need to be enrolled in a formal program to reach net-zero, the design and building process requires careful planning. As is true of all homes but especially important when trying to achieve net-zero efficiency; aside from a sealed envelope, performance driven windows and doors are paramount. Windows and doors need to have good insulating qualities and very low air-leakage rates, because holes punched in the walls for doors and windows are a potential weak spot for heat transfer and air infiltration. An Energy Star rating should be the starting point for window and door selection.
