Last month, we posted an article about how to use interior sliding glass doors to increase home energy efficiencies in which we talked about how glass can add LEED points:
Glass doors can contribute to achieving U.S. Green Building Councilâ€™s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) ratings. Use of glass can add LEED points for reductions in lighting power density. Using glass, especially if it is made of recycled and recyclable materials, instead of drywall is a good, sustainable, and eco-friendly choice and will promote better indoor air quality by reducing the use of emitting materials such as adhesives and sealants. In new construction or renovations, smaller living spaces can be designed by reducing the access space that is required by traditional doors.
