Energy testing was performed by the Energy Studies in Buildings Lab at the University of Oregon. The SLIPs performance was exceptional when applied to single pane windows and when compared to more expensive alternatives.
Using results on the study, it was concluded that adding SLIP™ to the windows in an average household will result in a cost reduction of 72.9% for the windows.
Average Energy Consumption Associated with Heat Gain/Loss of Windows at a Typical U.S. Household:
- Single pane windows…454 THERMS and 474kWh
- Single pane window with added SLIP™…123 THERMS and 129kWh
- Single pane window with SLIP™ and weatherstripping…93 THERMS and 97kWh
A therm is a unit of measurement of energy (more specifically thermal energy). The therm is used to measure gas consumption as well as consumer cost.
Data yielded by these calculations are built based on assumptions on U.S. household energy use by the U.S. Energy Information Administrations’s Residential Energy Consumption Survey, energy testing done by Energy Studies in Buildings Lab(UO), and windows-associated energy calculations spelled out by the U.S. Department of Energy
