Fall is almost here. The weather can become generally fair during this season, yet the chill of the upcoming winter is on the horizon and can’t be ignored. Indeed, it is important to consider any necessary upgrades to prepare for winter. One thing you can do to ensure this is to invest in replacement windows.
Of course, you shouldn’t settle with just any windows installation. Consider one that takes into account energy efficiency for your home to get you through the colder temperatures of fall and winter.
How Energy-Efficient Windows Work
Energy-efficient windows work just like any other ordinary units. The only difference is that they keep your indoors comfortable without relying on your heating system. This is all thanks to the existing materials that comprise such windows.
Certain double hung windows are energy-efficient when they have low-E glass. This term, which is short for “low emissivity”, refers to the capability of a surface to emit or give off heat via radiation. Such glass has a special coating applied to radiate the heat it absorbs. During the fall and in the subsequent winter months, the heat stays inside your home while the cool air remains outside. It also helps that such windows are tightly sealed around the openings so that no warm air can escape.
Another component that makes windows energy-efficient is the framing material. Renewal by Andersen®, the top windows and doors company in the U.S., offers the Fibrex® material, which is known for its excellent insulating properties. Other materials like vinyl and wood are common choices for replacement windows, yet they can’t match Fibrex in terms of durability.
