Helping the Environment & Your Energy Bill
The Smart Choice
Studies have shown that over 40 percent of a typical home’s annual energy budget is consumed by windows and doors. ENERGY STAR-labeled windows and doors are twice as efficient as those manufactured just 10 years ago, and 40 percent more efficient than products manufactured using common building code guidelines.
Our Low-E products are often referred to as sputtered (or soft-coat), due to the glass coating process. This type of product, sometimes called spectrally selective Low-E glass, reduces heat loss in winter and reduces heat gain in summer. Compared to most tinted and reflective glazing, this Low-E glass provides a higher level of visible light transmission for a given amount of solar heat reduction.
Cool Season Savings
In climates that mainly require cooling, windows have represented a major source of unwanted heat gain. In recent years, windows have undergone a technological revolution. It is now possible to significantly reduce solar heat gain and improve comfort while providing clear views and daylight. In warm regions, this means that high-performance windows can face into the sun if desired without great energy penalties — although shading techniques remain important.
