Climate Change Facts

Energy efficient residential windows and doors can make a difference.

The topic of climate change is uppermost in many people’s minds and is in the news on a regular basis. A growing number of people and many scientists worldwide believe that the earth is warming due to human generation of “greenhouse” gases. This belief may not be scientifically conclusive, but the potential consequences of climate change are projected to be so severe that the argument in favor of limiting “greenhouse” gas emissions is compelling.

Yet few are aware of how much energy-efficient windows and doors can do to help. They can significantly reduce energy consumption in both hot and cold climates. What about emissions from Cardinal plants in manufacturing these products? In fact, the energy saved by Cardinal glass products neutralizes our entire carbon footprint in about a year.
