Serious Materials announced last week that the Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County (CEDA), Ill., is using its super-insulating, high R-value Serious Windows for the Illinois Home Weatherization Assistance Program. The windows are being installed to provide enhanced energy efficiency in three income-eligible multi-family projects administered by CEDA, in Chicago and suburban Cook County. CEDA now plans to install super-insulating windows in most or all multi-family housing units that qualify for weatherization.

“We are pleased to work with Serious Materials to help make homes more energy efficient,” says CEDA president/CEO Robert L Wharton. “[The company supplies] a product that is unique to weatherization, and we believe this will greatly benefit not only the families we serve, but the local economy as well through job creation.”

“CEDA is leading the nation in adopting advanced energy-saving technologies in weatherization programs,” adds Serious CEO Kevin Surace. “With CEDA’s commitment, we expect to supply large volumes of our cost-effective, super-insulating Serious Windows and create more jobs in our Chicago factory.”
