Energy efficient windows can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, quiet outside noise, and greatly improve the comfort in your home.
Today’s Low-E window technologies greatly reduce cold and hot interior glass thereby providing more constant indoor air temperatures and increased comfort.
Many homes have rooms with “hot spots,” which are often solved by upgrading to Low-E energy efficient windows with low solar heat gain (SHG) coefficients.
Windows with low U-factors help reduce frost and condensation on interior glass during the winter and helps reduce interior moisture and humidity.
Energy efficient windows also allow you to enjoy more light in your home since there’s less need to tint windows or use shades on all windows to reduce the solar heat gain in your home. This results in more light entering your home and allows you to enjoy unobstructed views of the outside.
The sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can fade organic materials such as flooring, upholstery fabrics, paints, wood, artwork, etc. Today’s Low-E coated windows can reduce UV light by up to 75% and help protect your home’s furnishings.
If you’re replacing windows and HVAC in your home, today’s new low-E energy efficient windows reduce the peak heating and cooling loads which allows for sizing smaller HVAC equipment and saving you money and energy. Make sure your HVAC technician measures and performs “load calculations” to size the proper new HVAC system to your home (and get you an SCE rebate!).
