Windows and doors can play a major role in the comfort and beauty of your Maine or New Hampshire home. Windows provide light, fresh air, and a view of the world around your home. Doors open to provide indoor and outdoor access, as well as safety and security. But when windows and doors don’t function well, they can waste your home’s energy and make your home feel drafty and uncomfortable.

Windows & Doors Designed for Passive Houses
Because Passive Houses require both energy efficiency and the need to harvest the sun’s radiant heat, we prefer Wasco windows and doors to meet these specialized requirements. Wasco window and door designs begin with high-efficiency triple pane glazing to allow the sun’s rays to pass through, yet keep cold air at bay. Passive House design uses an abundance of windows, so it’s essential to have the ability to tilt, pivot and rotate to maximize air flow to maintain inside comfort.
In their Wisconsin plant, Wasco uses German components to assemble their super efficient triple-pane windows. Wasco windows offer flexible positioning to allow air flow and regulate interior home temperatures in the summer. The company also makes a unique European design doors, including french doors, tilt-and-slide patio doors, storm doors, and conventional entry doors — all uniquely suited for Passive House construction.
