Energy Efficiency of Windows
Low-emissive glass, otherwise known as Low-E, is window glass that has been treated with an invisible metallic oxide coating. This creates a surface that reflects heat, while still allowing natural light to filter in. The use of Low-E glass results in a reduction of energy consumption and an overall increase in the comfort of your home all year round.
Argon gas is a clear, odorless, non-toxic gas that is filled in between the window panes to provide added energy efficiency. Used to minimize heat exchange through your windows, argon gas prevents unwelcomed heat from entering your home while the warmth you want stays put. Therefore, regardless of the time of year, the comfort of your home is uncompromised.
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) administers an independent, uniform rating and labeling system for the energy performance of fenestration products, including windows. Think of this rating system as an energy efficiency report card for your windows. Measuring the U-Factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, Visible Transmittance and Air Leakage, our windows surpass the industry standards in every category ultimately saving you more on your energy costs and keeping your home more comfortable year round.
