Williston – Saltville, VA
This ‘Federal’ style home was relocated from a neighboring farm and destined to be torched until the Willistons had it moved and restored over a two-year period. They utilized our custom sized Climate Seal Window Inserts for all windows and the fireplace.
Shodor Foundation – Durham, NC
A historic building renovation that went from warehouse to commercial office space, the owners wanted to keep the original jalousie windows, however, the primary windows were single paned glass with aluminum frames—very inefficient. The architect specified Climate Seal Acoustic Series Window Inserts to maintain the historical integrity while maximizing the sound and thermal performance. The project included 16 windows – 256 square feet of product and resulted in an 80% sound reduction. We are waiting to hear about their annual energy bill savings.
Pinpoint Heritage Museum – In Progress
An important piece of cultural history in Savannah, Georgia, this building was originally an oyster processing plant and has now been designated as a museum scheduled to open in late 2011 or early 2012.
The Architect specified Climate Seal’s ‘Preservation’ Series inserts to help achieve maximum U.V. light filtration for the various artifacts and also the ‘Acoustic’ Series inserts to help buffer sound from their various audio presentations throughout the exhibit.
The marsh is located directly behind the main building and restoration of the interior is virtually complete. Stay tuned for pictures from the completed project.
Florida A&M University – Tallahassee, FL
Florida A&M University was awarded a historic preservation grant from the National Park Service to modernize and preserve their Sampson Hall dormitory. This brick building with original wooden sash windows was in need of a complete restoration to the primary windows as well as a retrofit solution that would ensure the historical integrity while modernizing the efficiency of these 100-year old windows.
To achieve this combined approach, the Architect specified Climate Seal window inserts and along with Environmental Window Solutions and Lela Williams Interior Design (Largo, FL), we were able to help the University achieve LEED certification while maintaining their windows original look. The goal was achieved and the units look fantastic!
Screened in Porch
This screen porch used 2×4 frames for construction which provided plenty of room to work with for a recessed mount and a flush installation. 1/4″ optical grade acrylic was used to boost the insulating properties and allow the client to utilize the space year-round. The end result was consistent temperatures both out on the porch and inside the home.
Often overlooked, a fireplace when not in use can be a significant contributor to higher energy bills or reduced comfort within the space. Climate Seal Window Inserts can typically be retrofitted to the perimeter to create an airtight seal.

St. Pauls Episcopal Church - Boston, MA
Habitat for Humanity - Charlotte, NC
Climate Seal Window Inserts partnered with Energy-Tight energy auditors and Habitat for Humanity to assist a local Charlotte, North Carolina resident help save energy and drastically improve their comfort level. We also conducted a “blower door” test and thermal infrared imaging to document the project. The results were a 9% improvement in overall air infiltration and a 14 degree reduction of surface temperature of the glass.
