One of the primary ways in which new energy efficient windows save you money is through insulated glass. Your windows are a barrier between the interior and exterior of your property. If your windows are poorly insulated, then energy will be transferred between the inside and outside of your home.
In the winter, heat will flow through the window to the outside. The opposite will occur during the summer. By having properly insulated glass, this transfer of energy can be reduced. As a result, the interior of your Edmonton home will be more comfortable on a regular basis and your will spend less money keeping it so.
Another way in which heat is transferred through your windows is via radiant heat. During the summer, the warm air outside your property heats the glass of your window and then transfers into you home. In addition, sunlight and infrared radiation enter your property through the window and heat your interior. This second type of heat is called radiant heat.
In order to combat radiant heat transfer, energy efficient replacement windows have a thin metallic coating on the glass. This low emissivity coating (Low-E) reflects radiant heat. During the summer this keeps heat out of your residence and during the winter it keeps heat in your home.
Choosing the best combination of insulation and low-e coating is difficult on your own. Our Edmonton window replacement professionals can help you select the energy efficient replacement windows that will get you the greatest savings for the investment you make.
