Upgrading to energy-efficient windows can improve your home’s energy efficiency and help you save money on your energy bills. Modern windows have many great features that make them more energy-efficient than old windows. In today’s post, Ashmen Installations Inc., one of the top window companies in our local area, explains more.
Quality Frame Materials
ENERGY STAR®-qualified windows are made from quality frame materials like vinyl, fiberglass and composites. These materials are durable and require minimal maintenance. More importantly, these materials can reduce heat transfer through the windows. Some replacement window manufacturers also add insulation in their window frames. Energy-efficient replacement windows have window frames that work together with the window glass to prevent unwanted energy gain or energy loss.
Low-E Glass Coatings
As one of the top window installers in our area, we install replacement windows with low-e glass. Low-e glass has special coatings that reflect infrared light. This can help reduce solar heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter. These special low-e coatings also reflect damaging UV light, protecting furniture and preventing them from fading.
Multiple Panes and Insulating Gas Fills
Modern replacement windows also have multiple panes of glass. The space between these glass panes is filled with insulating gas. This viscous and slow-moving gas insulates better than ordinary air. This further improves the windows’ energy efficiency. The multiple panes of modern replacement windows also increase impact resistance and improve sound insulation.
