JELD-WEN tripane windows were widely used in the production of net-zero homes

JELD-WEN tripane windows were widely used in the production of net-zero homes. For those who haven’t heard, a Net-Zero home is a house that is equipped with cutting-edge technology so that it produces as much energy as it consumes. Net-Zero homes don’t just have potential to save homeowners money, they’re also better for the environment. Experts estimate that by 2030, all new homes being built in Canada will be Net-Zero.

Net-Zero homes are taking 2016 by storm, and JELD-WEN is proud to be working towards an energy-efficient future. As part of a national demonstration project last year, five Canadian builders were selected to construct five Net-Zero homes each. JELD-WEN Tripane windows were widely used in the production of these homes. Tripane windows feature three panes of glass separated by argon gas and are one of our most energy efficient products to date.

Recently, JELD-WEN partnered up with other like-minded organizations to develop net-zero training sessions for builders. These sessions will educate and inform builders on how to achieve the standards required for a home to be considered Net-Zero. With this sort of teamwork, we are almost certain to meet our 2030 goal of Net-Zero for Canada.
