An Insert For Every Need In Boise, Idaho

supergreensolutions-of-alpharetta-ga-images-2-4-1442321254JR Smith lives in a  bungalow outside a major American city, just 2 ½ blocks from the train tracks, which is how the kit home was delivered 92 years ago. He loves his home’s four-over-one windows with wavy leaded glass but he wanted to make them more energy efficient.

He also wanted to sleep. And he wanted privacy in his bathroom. He used various grades of Indow inserts to make the 1923 windows of his home work for him in a way that didn’t damage their historic integrity. The changes were immediate and dramatic. For starters, his utility bills dropped $100 a month even though he made no other energy efficiency changes. And while he hadn’t been trying to block the train noise, the Indow inserts made his home much quieter, muffling the full-blown whistles from the commuter rail and the Amtrak trains.

“The Indow inserts are absolutely fantastic,” he said. “The exterior noise has been reduced and my utility bill has gone down $100 a month.”

But the differences didn’t stop there. JR used to live in Sicily, Italy where blackout blinds were installed as standard features in bedrooms. In trying to replicate that experience, he bought blackout curtains from the hardware store and taped velcro to the window frame to supergreensolutions-of-alpharetta-ga-images-3-4-1442321289get a good seal against the light but it wasn’t 100 percent.

Retired from the military, JR has a tendency to wake early, so any light coming in the windows means rise and shine at 5:30 a.m. He wanted to sleep until 7 a.m. “If there’s a ray of light coming in the window, I’m up,” he said. Before going to bed, he swaps the transparent Standard Grade Indow insert for an Indow Sleep Panel, which provides the same level of energy efficiency but makes the room pitch black so the early morning rays don’t wake him. In the morning, he swaps them out again. For his bathroom he bought the translucent Privacy Grade so it’s light-filled without the need for curtains. “I’m an all-around happy camper.”

SuperGreen Solutions is excited to offer Indow inserts in the Boise area because they provide replacement window comfort, window energy efficiency, sun/UV protection and quiet windows, but not window replacement cost. Indow inserts also provide superior window noise reduction, outperforming the performance of many noise reduction windows.

Case Study: Quiet Luxury For A Boutique Hotel

Travelers go to 21 Broad in Nantucket to unwind. The boutique hotel’s 1872 Victorian architecture beckons in a friendly way on an island of Federal-style buildings. And inside, it’s just about everything a person would want in a getaway. Not only does it have a spare elegance, but the muted colors make you want to exhale in an interior designed by Rachel Reider of Boston. There isn’t a door, molding or floor that wasn’t polished back into its original glory with a massive recent renovation and expansion. Luxury amenities in this Lark Hotel include a steam and massage room and shower heads infused with Vitamin  C to soothe the skin.

It’s safe to say management is attuned to what guests want.

But it’s located in downtown Nantucket next to a pub and some noise. The 27-room hotel fielded a handful of complaints from guests about sound generated from HVAC units in an adjacent alleyway as well as garbage trucks and service vehicles. Weary travelers want quiet. Since the building is a historic landmark, all the windows are the original wavy, leaded glass, which are gorgeous but no match for the noise of modern everyday living.

21 Broad doesn’t mess around. It quickly decided to install Acoustic Grade Indow inserts in the front bedrooms and called Stu Grant Windows. The difference Stu Grant was able to provide with window inserts was immediate: much needed quiet. The day the inserts were installed was a perfect day for testing. The hotel was having construction work done on the exterior that involved saws and jackhammers.

“It was such a drastic difference,” said general manager Dan Matter. “It was night and day. We’re 100 percent confident it will handle all the noise complaints generated from the street.”

The inserts also blocked drafts to make the rooms even more comfortable than they were. And they’re nearly invisible, so much so that when Dan had to do some maintenance work on a window, he completely forgot the inserts were there. But most of the time he remembers, because it’s so much quiter. “You can hear the difference,” he said. “You can feel the difference.”

Case Study: Indow Windows Are Your Solution When Double-Pane Windows Fail

Scott Knapp and his wife built their house on Lake Ontario themselves. They bought new wood double-panes from a huge, reputable window company to make their home warm and snug. It was a company, Scott says, that “sells them by the boatload.

But to the couple’s surprise, the windows were drafty right from the start. And Chaumont, New York can get cold, sometimes minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Scott asked the company for new seals and received several pieces made of vinyl, weatherstripping and felt, but none of it worked to eliminate the drafts.

As a home performance contractor, Scott had done a super job of insulating the house but the faulty new windows stumped him. He wasn’t about to replace them since they were brand new, so he bought insulating blinds as a stop gap measure until he could figure out a solution. He and his wife were cold that first winter in their new house and couldn’t even watch television in the main living room.

“Heck, you would expect 20 years out of a new window,” said Scott. “You expect they would last longer. They’re nice windows as far as looks go, but functional? No.”

He found Indow inserts, which immediately solved the problem. His wife, who is sensitive to drafts, told him, “There’s a huge difference in here.” Scott used his thermal imaging gun to see the difference he and his wife could both feel. It showed the window with an Indow insert was 23 degrees warmer than the one without. The inserts took care of the condensation problem on the windows and the boiler for the heater doesn’t have to run as much to heat the home. “The changes in the home were just short of amazing,” said Scott. He liked them so much he is now an Indow dealer helping to make others more comfortable around the region.
