From the sunlight that enters and warms your home during the summer to the air inside that escapes and cools your home in the winter, it takes a lot of energy to keep your home comfortable. Solar Energy USA energy efficient double hung windows are double-paned and filled with argon gas for maximum energy efficiency. We use ENERGY STAR-rated windows with the highest R-value glass available for greater insulation and power bill savings.
Solar heat gain, visible light, and U-factor are all important factors that should be weighed when choosing windows. The key to choosing the right glass package for your home is to find the combination of performance and value to suit your needs. All Solar Energy USA windows come standard with Low-E glass to ensure comfort and energy savings within your home.
Low-E Glass Filled With Argon Gas
Low-E glass prevents heat radiation from the sun from entering your home in the summer, and keeps the warm climate inside your home during winter months. By adding Low-E glass to our windows, we can improve the energy savings performance over a standard window by 24% year-round. By adding argon gas, an incredible insulator, we can increase this energy savings even more, up to 30%!
ENERGY STAR Rated
Thanks to advances in technology, today’s ENERGY STAR-rated windows offer greater savings than ever before. Lower energy consumption not only saves money on your power bill, but also reduces greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and shrinks a home’s carbon footprint. All Solar Energy USA windows are ENERGY STAR rated which makes them eligible for energy efficiency tax credits.
You should select windows that make the most sense for your climate. While some windows are better at keeping you warm, others are designed to keep you cool. Performance criteria are based on climate zones and ratings are certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). All Solar Energy USA windows are NFRC-certified to ensure energy savings performance standards.
Energy Performance Rated
The 2 energy performance ratings that matter the most with regard to residential windows are the U-Factor and the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient. The U-Factor indicates how well a window is rated for insulation, with lower U-Factors indicating better insulation. The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient indicates how effective the window is at blocking the sun’s radiant heat, with lower ratings indicating windows that allow less solar heat into the home. Look for positive energy performance ratings on all Solar Energy USA energy efficient windows.
