You might be considering window replacement to improve the efficiency and comfort of your home, but you’ll love the fresh new look that stylish new windows provide. The newest products give you both style and efficiency. Vinyl windows give you that style and efficiency in the most economical package.
EfficiencyIf you’re still living with the older original windows in your home, window replacement can save you money on utilities and update the appearance of your home’s exterior. New insulating features like double or triple panes can save you 10 to 25 percent a year on heating and air conditioning costs.
What Makes Replacement Windows More Efficient?
- Multiple panes
- Gas fills
- Low-E glass
- Warm edge spacers
- Quality frame materials
Multiple Panes and Gas Fills
A window with two panes of glass insulates much better than a single-pane unit. Some windows have triple panes for even more energy savings. New multi-pane windows have the sealed space between panes filled with an inert gas like argon or krypton. These gasses are non-toxic but they insulate better than regular air.
Glass that is treated with a special low-E (low emittance) coating blocks heat transfer, yet allows visible light to pass. Low-E coatings are microscopically thin and practically invisible. A metal or metal oxide layer is deposited directly on the surface of the glass. The practical effect is to keep heat inside in the winter and to keep heat outside in the summer. Low-E coatings can reduce energy loss by as much as 30 to 50 percent.
Another benefit is that low-E coatings block UV rays, protecting your carpets, drapes and furnishings from the sun’s harmful rays.
Warm Edge Spacers
Warm edge spacers keep the panes at the optimal spacing. Also, by separating the glass from the frame, heat transfer is minimized.
Quality Frame Materials
Window replacement with the right quality frames increases the energy savings even more. Vinyl frame windows are durable, low-maintenance and insulate better than wood or metal. Not only is vinyl thermally superior to wood and metal, you will never have to paint. The color is built in to the material itself. Stabilizers that resist the effects of the sun’s UV rays are engineered right into the vinyl to ensure that the color remains vibrant. Vinyl resists moisture and needs no special maintenance to last for years and years.
Energy Efficient Window Replacement
Just like the appliances in your home, the highest quality new windows, doors and skylights can be Energy Star rated. The US Department of Energy maintains standards of efficiency for many building materials. Window replacement with Energy Star rated units can reduce your household energy consumption by 7 to 15 percent compared to non-qualified products, and up to 25 percent compared to many older single-pane windows.
