If your windows are outdated, you’re probably paying too much to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Investing in energy efficient windows immediately lowers your carbon footprint and helps you trim your energy costs.

Our energy efficient window installers will help you choose the windows that best suit your needs, and then provide flawless workmanship for durable, impressive performance.
Selecting Replacement Energy Efficient Windows
Replacement energy efficient windows can offer significant savings on your heating and cooling costs but, before you start shopping, there are some terms you should become familiar with that will help you make informed choices about your windows. Important terms relating to the energy efficiency of windows include:
- Low-E Glass: Low-E glass has a thin
coating that reflects heat. During the summer, heat is directed away from your
home, and during the winter heat is prevented from escaping.
- U-Factor: This is a measurement of
the heat conducted through the windows. A lower U-factor indicates better
- R-Value: This refers to how well
insulation or an insulated material resists heat flow. Higher R-values mean
more effective insulation.
- SHGC: Solar heat gain
coefficient (SHGC) measures the solar energy that penetrates the windows. A
lower number means less heat is transmitted.
- Air Leakage: This is a measurement of
the amount of heating and cooling that is lost due to air leakage through and
around your windows. Ideally, you should purchase windows with air leakage
rates below 0.30.
