The Science Behind Energy-Efficient Windows
Energy-efficient window products are designed to reduce air and heat exchange
between your home’s interior and the outside environment. This property
improves their ability to insulate your home, reducing stress on your
HVAC system for a more comfortable home and lower monthly energy costs.
Energy-efficient windows use materials specifically chosen for their low
heat transmission. The laws of thermodynamics state that heat travels
from warmer areas to colder ones; low heat transmission means heat from
the outdoors cannot transfer into your home through your windows in the
summer, and your home’s warm indoor environment won’t radiate
away into the outdoors during the winter. Low heat transmission through
your home windows may be achieved via one or more design solutions.
- Multiple panes of glass help to reduce heat transfer through the glass
itself. The space between each pane and the next is typically filled with
a gas, such as argon, with lower heat transmission properties than the
- UV light contains high-energy photons, which have a heating effect when
sunlight enters your home through your windows. Reflective coatings improve
energy efficiency by blocking UV light from incident sunlight, letting
lower-energy photons inside for ambient light without the heating effect.
Why You Should Consider Energy-Saving Windows
Energy-efficient windows can reduce your monthly energy bills and improve
your comfort at home. If you are already considering
