Have you heard about the new glass system in town? R-5 windows may become the new standard, surpassing the already highly efficient, ENERGY STAR glass. So, what’s different about this new R-5 technology? Better efficiency and more savings for you!

Nearly 30% of heating and cooling costs literally go out the window, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. That is a lot of wasted money and wasted energy, which makes energy efficient windows a must. For homes in cold environments that need to keep the heat in and also homes in hot environments that need to keep the heat out, installing energy efficient windows is the ticket to achieving a more comfortable indoor temperature.

Features of the R-5 window technology:

  • 30% reduction in heat loss

  • 25% more insulation 

  • Lowest possible U-values (insulation values)

  • Highest possible R-values (resistance to the weather)

This new window technology goes beyond the ENERGY STAR window technology which was already a major advance in efficient window designs. Though the R-5 windows cost a little more to purchase, over time you will enjoy significant savings in heating and cooling costs.

If your home has drafty windows, foggy windows, or if they create hot and cold spots throughout the home, now is the time to take advantage of a more efficient window replacement. Please contact us today at Window Nation to learn more about how R-5 windows would work in your home and our energy efficient window replacements.

The new 2,500-square-foot showroom, at 15905 Brookway Drive, Suite 4104 in Huntersville, features name-brand vinyl, fiberglass and wood windows in settings that simulate the interior and exterior walls of a home, so buyers can see how the windows look once installed. The company offers thousands of options for replacement windows to ensure all customers can find windows that meet their needs.

“In the midst of a tough economy, we’re finding Charlotte-area homeowners are still paying attention to their homes’ upkeep and value,” says Window Nation President Harley Magden. “Windows that improve energy efficiency have been especially good sellers in this market.”

For customers who prefer in-home demonstrations, Window Nation specialists bring samples directly to the home, giving customers a realistic view of how the windows will appear in their own setting.
