Energy efficient window replacementsThe importance of Energy efficient replacement windows

Consumers understand that the importance of energy efficient window replacements upgrade your home both aesthetically and technically. The windows and doors of your home are the biggest source of energy loss. Accounting for up to half of your lost heating and cooling, new windows can save you approximately 7%-15% on your monthly heating and cooling costs. When replacing your windows, even the exterior material will directly affect the energy efficiency of your home.

Low-E glass

Glass, by itself, is one of the most poorly insulating materials available. This is because glass absorbs and transfers heat very easily. This makes for a very costly problem for every home with a significant number of windows. Low-E glass is designed to help block out the heat and harmful UV rays from the sun. In fact, some brands of Low-E glass are rated to block 95-99.9% of UV-A and UV-B radiation, which can reduce the fading of interior furnishings. Low E glass also reduces the amount of heat absorbed by your windows. There are many options for Low-E glass, including tints, reflective coatings, and multiple glass panes.

Double and triple paned options

The first versions of glass windows consisted of only a single pane of glass that separated the interior of the home from the exterior. As mentioned before, glass is an excellent conductor of heat, thus, single paned windows would transmit unwanted heat in the summer and unwanted cold in the winter. Modern energy efficient windows are available with two or three glass pane options, with the airspace filled with insulating gas to reduce the amount of heat transfer through the window.

Energy efficient materials

There are several varieties of windows that have different components and options, which mean that some windows offer superior energy efficiency to others. Fiberglass replacement windows, for example, offer superior energy efficiency compared to all other varieties of windows because fiberglass is a low-conducting material. Energy efficient windows perform more functions than almost any other feature of a house. They stop energy loss, keep the elements out, and let light and heat in. Replacing the windows in your home can be expensive and involved; however, the benefits of energy efficient windows provide a worthwhile return on your investment.
