What Are the Benefits of Energy Efficient Windows?
There are two primary benefits of windows that are designed with energy efficiency in mind. First and most obvious is the improvement in energy efficiency and the corresponding drop in your energy bills resulting from the improved efficiency. Your windows are the most common source of air infiltration and heat transfer, so improving the energy efficiency of your windows can have a significant impact on your heating and cooling bills.
Decreasing the amount of air infiltration and heat transfer contributes to not only lower energy bills, but also improved home comfort. Energy efficient windows can help to decrease the amount of hot and cold spots, leaving you with a more consistent temperature and comfortable conditions.
How Do Energy Efficient Windows Work?
Energy efficient windows can be made in a number of ways and with a variety of different materials. Generally, energy efficient windows will have a frame made of an energy efficient material like vinyl or fiberglass. It will be paired with double or triple paned glass with an insulating gas between each pane.
Some windows may even incorporate spacers, window glazing, and other options that can further improve efficiencies.
Whenever you are shopping for energy efficient windows, the best way to be sure a window is energy efficient is to look for an ENERGY STAR label. When comparing ENERGY STAR labeled products against each other, consult with one of our window professionals to help you make the best choice for you.
