What Makes Our Windows Energy Efficient?July 11, 2017
Inefficient windows can account for as much as 40% of your annual utility costs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Fortunately, investing in high-quality replacement windows can solve this problem by driving your comfort levels up and your utility bills down.
[company_name] offers replacement windows with superior energy efficiency. Here’s what makes our windows so energy efficient:
Quality Frame Materials
Our exclusive Fibrex® material helps insulate your home by reducing heat transfer. Made of wood fibers and polymer, Fibrex combines the strength of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl. Unlike wood, it doesn’t expand or contract when the temperature changes, allowing it to keep your home comfortable all year round.
All our windows, including picture and double hung windows, come with two panes of glass rather than a single pane, as this provides much stronger insulation. We also optimize the space between the glass panes to achieve superior performance.
Low-E (Low Emissivity) Glass
Different glass options have different levels of performance when it comes to cooling, heating, ultraviolet protection, and visible light transfer. The perfect solution depends on your local climate, the orientation of your windows to the sun, and the “custom climate” you want in your living space. With our wide array of glass options, we can provide ideal solutions for your specific needs.
Our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages all include state-of-the-art coating technology. We apply metal oxide coatings on the exterior to reduce water spots, making it easier to clean. Meanwhile, we use a low-E coating on the interior to maximize the visible light that enters your home while minimizing unwanted solar heat gain.
We use argon gas fill between the glass panes. This odorless, colorless, non-toxic gas insulates better than ordinary air, which adds to the overall thermal performance of our replacement units, whether they are casement or sliding windows.
Warm Edge Spacers
A spacer keeps a window’s glass panes properly distanced from each other. To reduce heat transfer through the window, we use a low-conductivity spacer made of stainless steel.
