Sacramento, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2014 -- Glass West, a Sacramento area glass and screen repair company, recently partnered with the Sacramento Habitat for Humanity to rehabilitate a home located at 3449 Western Ave in Sacramento, CA. To assist with the effort, Glass West donated 10 Milgard Low-E Windows and one Milgard glass door. Glass West chose to donate the Milgard Low-E windows in support of the Habitat for Humanity’s energy efficiency goals. “We’ve been in business in Sacramento since 1995, so we fully understand the importance of window efficiency in a rehabilitation project. We chose the Milgard Low-E windows because of their high quality and excellent efficiency ratings,” said David Blake, owner of Glass West.
According to the Sacramento Habitat for Humanity’s website, their goal is to achieve efficiency ratings that are 10% better than the existing California Title 24 residential efficiency standard requirements. To achieve this goal, they install onsite solar power, low-emissivity windows, attic insulations, compact fluorescent lights, exhaust fans with timers, and on demand water heaters. All these steps ensure the highest efficiency possible, which saves new residents on energy costs and lessens the impact on the environment.
Blake explained that the Milgard windows are an excellent addition to the project because they will ensure optimal efficiency for the home. “The Milgard windows are designed with a special low-emission window coating, which lowers the emissivity rating by providing better insulation and reduced heat loss,” says Blake. He continued to explain that the windows are designed using two thicknesses of window glass, which helps to improve the insulation of the windows. “The quality of the windows will greatly reduce the overall cost to warm and cool the home, which in turn results in a lower impact on the environment,” David concluded.
In partnership with the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA), the Sacramento Habitat for Humanity is currently redeveloping 5 homes on Western Avenue in Del Paso Heights. The 3449 Western Ave home is the 5th home they’ve completed on Western Ave.
According to Blake, Glass West participated in the Del Paso Heights project to return the blessings they’ve received from the Sacramento community over the last 2 decades. “We have been providing glass repair and sales in Sacramento for years. We have received a huge amount of support from the Sacramento community, and we plan to continue our service for years to come.” Find out more about how you can give back to your community by visiting the Sacramento Habitat for Humanity’s website.
