RESIDENTIAL CASE STUDIES
SPECTACULAR VIEWS. COZY COMFORT.
A BRILLIANT BLEND OF BOTH.
10 MILE POINT RESIDENCE, VICTORIA, BC
A beautifully, and thoughtfully, designed 6,500 sq ft home. The objective was to fit in with and enjoy the view of the incredible BC Coastline on Vancouver Island. Obviously architect Dennis Moore (D.H. Moore / Architect) succeeded brilliantly.
SOOO, THAT’S WHAT 41% VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMITTANCE LOOK LIKE?
If you thought it was going to be too dark, see for yourself. Clearly, Dennis Moore knew exactly what he wanted to achieve and he did. The performance results were a perfect blend of beauty and comfort. A u-value of .105 (R-Value 9.54) keeps the home cozy and warm as well as energy-efficient. ECOGLASS QUAD SC75 also provides 100% protection against harmful UV rays.
20 YEARS OF COMFORT
Mike, a Mississauga homeowner, decided to add a solarium across the back of his home 20 years ago. Working with his neighbor, a commercial contractor, he reviewed a number of options and plans. Mike saw a new insulating glass with dramatically better performance – an R-Value of 5.7, unheard of in its day. He chose the new insulating glass with our Heat Mirror film.
Baseboard Heaters Never Used
The solarium is beautiful living room/ dining combination that quickly became the most used room in the home. As a precaution, Mike had baseboard heaters installed. However, the superior glass performance created a space so comfortable, the baseboard heaters have never been turn on.
ECO Glass / HM uses Heat Mirror film creating two insulating cavities for superior thermal performance. With six different films to choose from and a variety of gas fills, you can select a range of R-Values today of up to an R-14.
This year, one window sustained some damage. ECO Insulating Glass replaced the glass in the frame. Now Mike can have another 20 years of comfort.
GEORGIAN BAY HOME
A BEAUTIFUL HOME IS ALSO THE MOST COMFORTABLE HOME
This beautiful home blends naturally into the Georgian Bay wilderness that surrounds it. Amidst the beauty, a level of superior comfort as well as energy savings have been designed into an exceptional home. ECO Glass / HM was the glass of choice because no other glass could offer the combination of energy savings, comfort and protection from UV rays that can damage personal property.
Uncompromising quality goes hand-in-hand with a desire for environmental responsibility and enjoyment of a beautiful home.
