According to the Consumer Federation of America, the average American household spends $1,500 per year on energy costs. But energy-efficient windows can help save a bundle.
But not only does it make financial sense, it’s smart to do in view of limited global resources. Conscientious consumers are increasingly making purchasing decisions based current environmental realities. By using products that reduce energy consumption, one diminishes their environmental footprint, limiting usage of fossil fuels and lowering carbon emissions.
Elite Vinyl Windows Inc. meets the "Title 24 requirements of California" another reason why our vinyl windows are NFRC, AMAA, and Energy Star certified.
It makes sense to maximise your insulation. Double glazing can have added insulating benefits when combined with Argon Gas and Low E366 glass.
Argon gas is a naturally occurring inert gas which is not harmful to you. By trapping a measured amount of Argon gas between the panes of glass and sealing it in, the insulating performance of your double glazing increases. Argon gas is denser than air and acts as a greater barrier to heat loss and heat absorption in the home, with a thermal performance increase of up to 15%.
LowE366, reflects long wave radiation keeping the heat inside the home. Using a combination of LowE366 glass and Argon gas you will receive ultimate insulation performance.
The Efficient Windows Collaborative suggests that when glass surface temperature falls below 52°F, there is a risk of thermal discomfort. To maintain the best comfort during the winter, select a glass product that produces surface temperatures that will stay above this point during the coldest outdoor conditions.
The insulating capability of LoĒ³- 366 can’t be compared to any other glass product. This is a key factor in the construction of comfortable homes. Additionally, the dramatic comfort improvement in windows with warm glass surfaces means the humidity of the indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. Proper humidity levels will improve comfort and promote a healthier living environment.
