Windows to Make Your Home More Energy Efficient
Window selection for any home is very important. Whether you are looking at windows for new home construction or replacement windows, Southwest Door & Window understands your desire for easy-care, energy-efficient vinyl windows. All of our products can be specified to meet Energy Star® criteria in all climate regions, including our very own Dallas to McKinney Texas areas.
Energy Star® windows
The Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have developed the Energy Star® designation for products meeting certain energy performance criteria, including vinyl and other replacement window types. Every window we sell can be specified to meet Energy Star® criteria in all climate regions.
Since the performance requirements of windows vary by climate, specific product ratings have been developed for each of the four U.S. climate regions shown.
Low-E Glass Technology
Low-E glass is coated with a virtually invisible layer of silver that reflects radiant solar energy while permitting visible light to pass through the glass. In cold, winter climates, the Low-E glass helps keep rooms warmer by reflecting heat back into the home while letting warm, solar rays in. In hot, summer temperatures, the Low-E glass lets visible light pass while blocking infrared and ultraviolet radiant solar energy. So your rooms stay cooler and you save on precious energy costs instead of watching your money (literally) fly out the window.
Low-E Glass with Insulating Argon or Krypton Gas
Insulating gas works like an insulating blanket between two panes of glass in the window to further improve the thermal efficiency of the window. In addition to saving valuable energy dollars, insulating gas helps deter outside sound from entering your home.
Low-E and Low Maintenance
And, in addition to energy efficiency, it’s important to note that with quality vinyl windows you can enjoy a virtually maintenance free future. Whether for new construction or as replacements windows, it’s tough to beat vinyl for all weather durability and easy upkeep.
