The Best Energy Efficient Windows

During the upcoming hot and humid summer months, you will most likely come across the dilemma of wanting to stay cool and relaxed inside your home, but unwilling to pay the huge electric bill that comes along with that comfort. There’s an easy fix for that, and it can save you up to 30% of your current utility fees.

Choosing to install energy-efficient windows can substantially reduce your monthly heating and cooling bills, so they pay for themselves year-round. Energy-efficient windows have benefits like smaller HVAC systems, so a lower HVAC cost, eliminating drafts that enter the home, reducing condensation and increasing the natural light allowed in the home.

Low-E4 Glass Windows: Low-E glass has been treated with a metal oxide coating, which reflects heat but allows natural light to pass through, so it’s great in the summer. Conversely, Low-E glass works just as well in the winter, as it works to stop any heat passing from the interior to the exterior of your home. As an added benefit, it has been shown that Low-E coatings decrease the fading of fabrics, so your window treatments or nearby furniture will retain that brand-new look longer.

SmartSun Window Glass: All standard window glass have a tint that reduces heat gain, but SmartSun glass has an extra layer of silver that is 70% more effective. The silver layer controls the amount of infrared energy and ultraviolet rays that are allowed through the windows while still permitting visible light to shine through. Compared to the Low-E windows, SmartSun does transmit less visible light, but is better at protecting your home from solar heat gain.

AuraLast Wood: Windows made with AuraLast wood not only feature low-E glass, but also reduce the toxin level in your home by 96% and are designed to last for 20-25 years, so you don’t have to worry about decaying wood, termites or water saturation. Additionally, AuraLast utilizes raw materials found within close proximity to its manufacturing plants, so less energy is needed to produce the wooden frame.

Fiberglass Composite Windows: Made with an advanced Ultrex fiberglass composite exterior, these energy-efficient windows feature minimal expansion or contraction and are highly resistant to intense summer heat and the freezing cold winter. The dual-pane glass has Low-E coatings which cut energy costs by 34-40%.

Triple-Pane Windows: Rated number 1 in energy efficiency, these windows are composed of three Low-E panes of glass, with two layers of thermal protection in between each glass sheet. This combination blocks up to 97% of ultraviolet rays, which decreases your energy bill by as much as 43%! You also have the option of an argon insert which adds more insulation, further reducing the heat or cool air transfer.

Zo-E-Shield Glass: Zo-E glass can include one, two or three panes of insulated glass that have three coats of a Low-E formula and are filled with argon-krypton gas. This energy-efficient option blocks 95% of ultraviolet rays while allowing natural light in and reducing condensation, mold and mildew, leading to a 33% savings on heating and cooling.

Recycled Windows: The ProShield window contains 9% of recycled material, which is the highest in the industry. Furthermore, ProShield uses Zo-E 5 glazing on their windows with a Warm Edge Spacer System in order to provide you with a 50% improvement over standardized window glass.
