How Do Energy Efficient Windows Work?

In today’s economic environment, much discussion centers around the subject of budgeting and energy efficiency. The topic of energy efficiency will almost always include windows and doors. One of the most common questions that arise during these discussions is “How do energy efficient windows work?” .

There are several features that make windows more energy efficient in today’s market.

Energy Star Certifications

One of the most important things to look for when purchasing your new windows is the Energy Star symbol. Windows and doors with this symbol are at least twice as efficient as the average window manufactured just ten years ago. Super Spacer systems and improved glass coatings are just a couple improvements that have increased this efficiency.

Super Spacer Insulation Systems

A Super Spacer added to any of our windows will increase the efficiency by lowering the U value. The Super Spacer is made of 100% polymer structural foam and will block the heat escape path, providing one of the best thermal performances.

Laminated glass windows consist of three panes of glass and blocks up to 99.97% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. This helps to protect flooring and furniture from fading while still allowing natural light in. Argon gas is inserted in the space between the panes of glass to further reduce the loss of heat while drastically reducing noise. This system also provides a very secure glass with the technology much like that of windshields of vehicles.

Glass Options
