As I entered the building where I work today:
I blame Al Gore. Or something.
It could be worse. People I know from Austin complain that when they leave the office to go home this time of year, as soon as they step outside their glasses fog up.
Is the other side of the door frame covered in condensation too? Condensation is always a sign of energy loss.
Our building – one of the newest on campus – has double pane windows that seem to be pretty good insulators. But the window frames are just hollow aluminum, no insulating foam. Up to an inch of ice forms on the inside during the winter, and condensation forms on the outside during the summer. Considerable water-damage on both sides in addition to (I can’t even imagine how much) energy loss.
Are architects all stupid? Or the people who write state RFP’s?
thanks useful entry
