Learn More About Local Law 97

Local Law 97, officially known as the Climate Mobilization Act, is a groundbreaking legislation aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change within New York City. Introduced in 2019, this law sets ambitious carbon emission limits for buildings over a certain size, targeting a significant reduction in the city’s overall carbon footprint.

Windows play a crucial role in achieving compliance with Local Law 97. They are essential components in enhancing a building’s energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions. Inefficiencies in windows, such as air leaks, poor insulation, or outdated glazing, can significantly impact a building’s overall energy consumption.

Local Law 97 mandates that buildings undergo periodic energy efficiency assessments, known as Local Law 97 Energy Grades. These grades are determined by assessing various factors, including a building’s energy use intensity (EUI), carbon emissions, and compliance with specific energy-saving measures. Windows are integral to this assessment, as they are assessed for their energy performance, insulation properties, and overall efficiency.

At Window Fix, we specialize in providing high-quality windows and professional repair services that enable property owners to meet the specifications required by Local Law 97. Our team of experts understands the unique requirements and challenges posed by this legislation and can guide you through the compliance process.

  • Energy-Efficient Window Installations: We offer a wide range of energy-efficient window options that meet or exceed the energy performance criteria outlined by Local Law 97. Our selection includes windows with advanced insulation properties, low-E coatings, and durable frames designed to minimize heat transfer and enhance thermal efficiency. Upgrading to these windows can significantly reduce your building’s energy consumption, helping you achieve compliance while maximizing energy savings.

  • Window Repairs and Upgrades: In addition to new window installations, Window Fix specializes in repairing and upgrading existing windows to improve their energy efficiency. Our skilled technicians can address issues such as air leaks, condensation, faulty seals, and outdated glazing. By retrofitting your windows with advanced technologies and weatherstripping, we can enhance their overall performance, ensuring they meet the required standards of Local Law 97.

  • Compliance Consultation and Support: Navigating the complexities of Local Law 97 can be challenging, but Window Fix is here to help. Our team can provide comprehensive compliance consultations, assessing your building’s current window conditions and identifying areas that require attention. We will guide you through the necessary steps to ensure your windows meet the specified energy efficiency standards, providing ongoing support to help you achieve compliance successfully.
