Are Old Windows More Efficient Than New?

Daniel Linley of Elkhart won Indiana Landmarks’ Servaas Memorial Award for his project proving the superior energy efficiency of vintage windows over modern ones.

A window salesman’s pitch put Daniel Linley on a quest to prove that new windows would be more energy efficient than old windows. But in his six-grade science fair project at Pinewood Elementary the old windows won, and so did Daniel’s project – at the school, local and regional levels. Daniel also took home the Servaas Memorial Award and accompanying $1,000 prize from Indiana Landmarks.  Read the rest of this article at the Indiana Landmarks website here.

“I wanted my science project to be relevant, something that people would care about. Anyone can add more baking soda to a volcano to make a bigger boom.” Daniel says.
