Our windows are durable, aesthetically beautiful and most importantly they will save you significant money on your energy costs.
The Components of Energy Saving Windows
Energy saving windows come in all window types; casement, double hung, slider, awning, etc. What makes them energy efficient is advanced design that incorporates various materials you may not have realized are used in the production of a window. First, the glass itself is made of thermal performance glass. This incorporates tinting that helps reflect UV rays and radiant heat while diffusing glare. Multiple panes of this glass also provide the opportunity for added protection as the space in between the glass is filled with Argon or Krypton gases. These gases absorb heat and provide fantastic insulation.
In our energy efficient window offerings, once we have high performance glass and gas fills, the only thing left is a quality frame. Our composite window frames resist expansion and contraction while keeping a beautiful finish for years. These frames will keep an air-tight seal with your home allowing no energy to escape. Along with other components like advanced weather stripping and warm edge spacers, you have the makings of a highly efficient window. What does that mean for you? Up to 60% savings on your energy bill!
Why Replace Your Windows?
Many people don’t realize the cost of inefficient windows. Traditional windows are made of a single pane of clear glass. This provides no protection against UV and heat transfer, allowing damage to your property and the sun’s energy to manipulate your internal temperature. Older wooden frames also have many broken seals and cracks that let conditioned air seep out, further adding to your energy inefficiency. Imagine every one of the windows in your home slowly allowing your cooled or heated air out while it lets the sun’s energy in. Over time that adds up to a tremendous cost in lost energy.
If you would like to pay less each month in power while enjoying beautiful windows, call Smart Home Improvement and let us show you what energy efficient windows can do for your Alexandria home.
