Are you in the market to upgrade your windows and energy efficiency is a top priority? Look no further. Our windows with their low-e coating and triple seals prevent the sun’s damaging rays and air and water from entering your home. Saving both your possessions from damage and keeping your climate control from working overtime.
What are energy efficient widows?
Energy efficient windows are windows that have special features that block the sun’s bad rays while still allowing the visible light through so it lights hour homes and brightens our days. They are also very rigid and strong so that when installed properly, they stay sealed and prevent leaks and gaps that allow air and water to pernitrate your walls and home. Finally, they have very extensive seals and sealing systems for each panel of glass that prevent your climate controlled air from escaping.
Our Low-E Coating is a special material applied to the glass that effects the transference of different wavelengths of light.
Remember in science class ROYGBIV? The colors to the light spectrum? Well, if you remember infrared light is light that you can’t see with your eyes but it is the wavelength of light that carries heat. Heat that if not blocked enters right into your home through your windows. Do you have pets that like to lie in the sun? It warms their bodies.
It also warms your home. There is a tremendous amount of heat that comes in through unprotected glass. Many of our customers save about 40% on their electric bills after we install new windows. You simply will not believe the quality of our coating and the results you experience.
The other important wavelength of light is UV. We’ve heard a lot about it for the last 10 or 15 years relating to sun burns and SPF protection for our skin. The sun also damages your curtains, carpets, furniture even wood floors if it is allowed to shine on them without any protection.
Our Low-e coating also blocks UV light. This protects your belongings from being bleached and damaged by the sun. Making your carpets, drapes and anything else in your windows last much longer.
If you have old, single pane windows in your home chances are they are leaking your climate controlled air right out in gaps and cracks in the seals. Do you have any places that you can feel air moving on windy days? That is your money going literally right out the window.
Not only are new windows much more rigid than old windows but the frames themselves are welded with new technology that didn’t even exist when your home was built. This makes them super strong. Old windows were just made to fill a hole with glass to let light in. That technology is over 100 years old. New windows are made to protect your home and belongings while allowing light in and an unobstructed view out.
The way our new windows are constructed is so much better that it isn’t even fair to compare the two. Many of the old single pane windows in Florida are the aluminum frame, single pane windows. They were installed when your home was built and sealed at that time. Over the years, decades that seal breaks down and needs to be replaced. How many homeowners in Florida do that?
Our new windows have multiple seals, not just one. They interlock and are sealed with a long lasting seal.
New windows are double and triple paned glass. At a minimum you want double pane glass that includes an sir space barrier. That space is filled with an inert gas. Inert gasses don’t interact much at all so they don’t transfer heat and cold all that well. That makes the space between the glass panes an insulator.
The triple pane comes in if you opt to go with impact resistant windows. The outer layer of glass is actually 2 panes of glass fused together with a super strong, invisible laminate. This laminate prevents penetration into your home even if the glass is broken. So if you are in a storm flying debris won’t get in. Or, you don’t have to worry about break-ins. If you can’t break the window or smash the frame that eliminates how most criminal enter.
An added benefit of all this insulation is the peace and quiet it provides. The double or triple pane glass makes a huge difference. But the big difference is all the seals. The windows being properly seals to the house and the windows themselves sealing closed. You literally lock out the world when you close up your home. You won’t believe the difference until you experience it.
When remodeling in most places in Florida, impact protection is required. You can choose impact-resistant windows or double pane windows with a protective shield. This is a more economical way to meet building codes that require impact protection. It is a custom fit, rip-stop fabric that prevents objects from smashing through into the home. Our windows shields are Code-certified to provide complete confidence.
Having a secure home is important for many reasons and addressing the weakest link is the obvious choice. But there are many additional benefits to using quality products like Home Performance Alliance non-impact windows.
