Energy Efficient Windows
A home improvement with a high return on investment
Probably the single most effective and practical home improvement you can get fast results from is the installation of energy efficient windows.
State of the art, advanced technologies now offer the manufacture of powerful windows that provide UV and heat protection as well as superior insulation properties. These windows are increasing in popularity as energy awareness rises.
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.
Energy saving windows
- Come in all window types; casement, double hung, slider, awning, etc.
- Glass itself is made of thermal performance glass
- Incorporates tinting that helps reflect UV rays and radiant heat while diffusing glare
- May have multiple panes of glass 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.
- Composite window frames keep an air-tight seal with your home allowing no energy to escape.
- Advanced weather stripping and warm edge spacers seal the deal for up to 60% energy savings
Window film application may be an option
One of the most affordable and quick solutions to this is the application of window film. Window film is a laminate retrofit coating that is applied to the interior of your windows. This coating has a number of benefits that will save you money and upgrade your window’s aesthetic value.
Benefits of window film
- Reflects UV light and radiant heat
- Reduces glare
- Can be decorative
- Can provide privacy
- Provides energy savings
- Very affordable
