All homeowners prioritize energy efficiency, both when tackling home improvement projects and when purchasing new household products. In today’s blog, Renewal by Andersen® of Cincinnati, your top window replacement company, discusses the various technologies applied to your windows to maximize energy efficiency.
The spaces between the panes on a double- or triple-pane window have to be filled with gases like argon to slow the transfer of heat through the window. Argon is a naturally occurring gas known for being an inexpensive, non-toxic, colorless and odorless insulator. It’s a highly effective gas fill for multiple-paned windows. In addition, it also helps with soundproofing, reduces condensation and frost, and it will not corrode your replacement windows.
Window coatings can reduce energy loss by around 30 to 50%. They can also reduce a window’s U-factor and minimize visible transmittance while blocking out harmful UV rays and solar radiation. Today, you can find many windows with a low-E coating. This type of coating is essential to homes in hot climates or in areas that get a lot of sun exposure.
The primary role of window insulation is to reduce the amount of heat transferred through the glass. You may consult your window contractor regarding the best type of window insulation for your home.
