Windows

Windows include typical single- double- or triple-paned residential fenestration, as well as commercial building glazing. Windows are generally less efficient than walls, and are also a common site for air infiltration. Energy-efficient windows can save 7-15% of residential energy. However, good windows are expensive, and are generally less cost-effective than other efficiency measures.
