Looking to reduce your energy expenditure this winter? Windows can account for up to 30 percent of heat loss in the colder months, leading to an uncomfortable home and sky-rocketing heating bills. But there is a way to cut costs, keep your home warm, and even make it more eco-friendly—upgrading to new energy efficient windows with a low U-value!
A window’s U-value is a great indicator of its energy-efficiency. Depending on the U-value, you could save hundreds—or more—on your energy bill each year! Better yet, Quality Window & Door carries a wide selection of windows with great U-values.
A U-Value is a number that measures a window’s energy efficiency. It determines the rate at which heat moves through a structure given certain wind and humidity conditions. If the windows in a structure have a good U-Value, they can reduce the rate at which heat escapes. Quality Window & Door sells a variety of energy efficient windows for homeowners and contractors with all sorts of window needs.
The lower a window’s U-Value, the higher its energy-efficiency. For instance, a vinyl window with a U-Value of .05 would insulate better than an aluminum window with a U-Value of .07. Other factors go into determining a window’s U-value:
