6. High-performance windows and insulationChris Price of Klima Architecture in Park City, Utah, says triple-pane windows are key to improving comfort and energy-efficiency in your home. “Glazing makes up a large part of our envelopes, and they are proportionally very poor in thermal resistance versus a solid framed wall,” he says.Additionally, you want to be sure your solid walls aren’t leaking either. “Insulation is the cheapest and easiest material to add to a home. Very easily by increasing the depth of standard walls, you can substantially get better wall performance, for a small upcharge,” he says. “We try to firstly minimise the total carbon footprint our projects have over their lifetime, which, as research shows, is the energy performance, so we put most of our eggs in making the most robust, airtight, thermally broken and insulated envelopes possible.”
