You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again–if you’re looking for new windows and patio doors, make sure your choice is energy-efficient. With energy costs on the rise and more and more people looking for green home solutions, it’s easy enough to understand why energy-efficient products are highly recommended. But what else do they have to offer?
Energy-efficient windows can also:
- Improve Home Comfort
Energy-efficient replacement units offer great thermal performance, meaning they insulate well, effectively keeping indoor heat in and outdoor heat out. This makes it easier for your HVAC system to achieve your desired indoor temperatures and ensure you stay comfortable.
- Boost Natural Light in the Home
To filter out heat from the sun, an energy-efficient replacement window or storm door will feature low-emissivity glass coated with metallic oxide. The coating is microscopically thin so it’s invisible, meaning it won’t get impede natural light unlike tinted glass. And because low-E glass is designed to keep solar heat at bay, you won’t need to use window treatments to prevent passive heating. The result? All the natural light your window can let in.
- Ease Noise Transmission
Where air can’t freely flow through, sound is unable to easily pass as well. This is why energy-efficient windows, with their airtight seals and excellent insulative abilities, are great for homes along busy streets, easing noise transmissions to give you peace and quiet at all hours of the day.
