ENERGY STAR® considers high-performance windows an essential element to any home’s complete thermal enclosure system. But what does “high-performance” mean and why does that matter to you? Today, Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico explains how these windows can benefit you:
Lowering Energy Bills
High-performance replacement windows are those deemed optimally energy-efficient in your location. All regions in America have unique climates, and so have different energy-efficiency requirements. For instance, products considered energy-efficient in Florida may not provide similar benefits when used in Minnesota.
Buying ENERGY STAR-certified windows with the right mix of ratings allows you to reap the most energy-saving potential. In Bernalillo County, products with a combination of a 0.30 U-factor and a 0.40 Solar Heat Gain Coefficient regulate the flow of heat best.
Getting Light Without Heat
Improved daylighting is a distinctive advantage of investing in high-performance sliding, bay, bow and double hung windows. This is especially true when it comes to units with multiple layers of spectrally selective Low-E coating. Their microscopic coatings specifically reflect the sun’s infrared rays to reduce solar heat gain while allowing daylight to enter.
Enjoying Consistent Comfort
Weathertight seal is another claim to fame of high-performance window systems. Custom-designed to fit within the existing openings and equipped with advanced weathering strips, they keep drafts out effectively. By minimizing the entry of unwanted outdoor air, the outside world would hardly interfere with your indoor climate.
In addition to infrared radiation, high-performance specialty, picture and casement windows deny entry to ultraviolet light too. Closing them keeps your valuables from fading quickly and allows sunshine to brighten up your space at the same time. As a result, your articles of furniture, floors, drapes, and pieces of artwork would be protected against sun damage.
