In the past, the Association studied and developed specs for double pane windows which several Unit Owners have taken advantage, and installed in their units. Signa System Inc., of Chicago has performed this installation in most of the units that had this done.
Two owners in the building are considering installation of a second pane in their 17 windows to help reduce the fogging and frost/ice buildup in winter. The system also tends to help keep a unit warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Noise reduction is another helpful benefit of the installation. While not cheap, SIGNA System, Inc is offering an 8% discount if three owners sign at the same time and a 10% discount if four or more owners sign simultaneously. The exact cost depends on whether or not there is already solar film installed, number of windows and other factors. Contact Bob Shamo (773.907.0665) or Ken Anderson (773.944.0639) for more details or to get a brochure.
