Why Are Energy Efficient Windows Better in Severe Weather?

March 3rd, 2014

Spring may be just around the corner, but it doesn’t always feel like it here in the Nutmeg state. With temperatures still in the twenties, we still have several weeks of winter left. And unfortunately, those cooler temperatures aren’t always confined to the great outdoors.

When outside is harsh and frigid, it becomes even more difficult to keep unwanted temperature changes from occurring in your home. Outdoor air can creep into your home through cracks in doors, chimneys, garages and windows. Because windows are mostly made up of glass, those that don’t have supreme insulation may not keep cold or hot air from entering your home. However, with energy efficient windows, extra insulation protects your home from unwanted changes in temperature. Learn more below.


Benefits of Energy Efficient Windows 

When your glass is working twice as hard to keep your home’s air in, and outside air out, it may help save money on energy bills over time. Though there are many benefits of installing high-energy efficient windows in your home, we have listed out just a quick summary of why these windows are great.

  • With extra insulation and improved sealing, energy efficient windows trap your home’s air inside your home and outside air outside, which may save you money on energy bills over a period of time.
  • The Intercept™ Warm Edge Spacer System from Window World helps cut damaging effects of the sun. When the sun is pouring into your windows day in and day out, it may start to fade your carpet, furniture and curtains over time.
  • Just another added bonus, the additional insulation may keep your home quieter and protected from the sounds of noisy traffic and neighbors.

Adding Low-E glass to a standard insulated glass unit can improve the year-round energy performance of your window by 24%. Again, we believe that the benefits of using energy efficient windows are truly endless. Want to know more? Read all about Low-E glass here or call Window World of Connecticut today!
