Victor, New York (PRWEB) August 22, 2005 -- Window Repair Systems announced
today that it is helping schools districts maximize savings in energy and operating
costs while earning the ENERGY STAR label for buildings, the US Environmental
Protection Agencys (EPA) national symbol for superior energy performance.
As a provider of energy-efficient services and products, Window Repair Systems
is improving the energy performance of its clients through upgrades and implementing
proven energy management strategies. Clients can strive to earn the ENERGY STAR
label for their buildings and positively impact their operating expenses and shareholder
At the Troy State University at Dothan, Window Repair Systems was contracted
to repair roughly 200 windows. With their TURBO II balance retro-fit, Window Repair
Systems not only made the windows significantly more safe but the retro-fit decreased
the CFM (air infiltration/ cubic feet per minute) from 15 CFM to 3CFM. This decrease
in CFM is roughly five times, reducing indoor temperature fluctuations and reducing
the amount of energy used to regulate those temperatures.
The Dothan project will pay for itself in energy savings in two years. "Imagine
what school districts can buy with the money saved with the TURBO II retro-fit.
New computers, more building renovations and updated school materials, are just
some of the benefits that can be seen after the correct energy program is implemented,"
stated Marketing Associate, Michael W. Fox.
Not only does Window Repair Systems retro-fit windows with their TURBO II balances
that decrease air infiltration and increases safety, they also carry various energy
kits which consist of products that range from window shades to window film.
"Investments in improving energy performance can achieve competitive rates
of return while cutting energy costs by 30 percent," said Jean Lupinacci,
branch chief, EPA.
Window Repair Systems has committed to helping its customers achieve superior
standards of energy performance in their buildings. This will help these customers
reap financial rewards and position themselves as environmentally responsible
EPA estimates that by 2010, the savings from energy-efficient investments will
reduce the annual greenhouse gas emissions in the United States by 2.4 million
tons the equivalent of the pollution produced by 1.7 million cars
and save taxpayers more than $750 million per year.
