Energy-Efficient Windows Help Keep Homes in Orlando and Throughout Central Florida Comfortable Year-Round
For decades, windows have been the source of many homeowner’s energy bill woes. But with modern window technology, they no longer have to be as wasteful as they once were. In fact, changing your home’s windows to more energy efficient versions can have profound effects on your energy usage. And in places like Orlando where air conditioners often run all year, lessening the burden on your HVAC system is always welcome.
Energy Efficient Window Solutions
There are several ways that modern windows have increased their energy efficiency. Importantly for homeowners, these solutions can all be combined into the most efficient windows on the market or selectively chosen to suit different budgets. Some of the ways homeowners can improve their windows’ energy efficiency include:
Most modern windows incorporate some type of frame insulation, such as air pockets or different internal and external materials. Frames are also available with foam fills to maximize their insulative properties.
Low-E glass is designed to decrease emissivity, which is a measure of how much energy can pass through the glass. When installed in windows, Low-E glass is better able to keep outside temperatures out of the home while maintaining internal temperatures.
One of the most effective energy efficient window treatments is the use of multiple panes of glass. By trapping air or specific gas mixtures in between two or more panes of glass, the thermal properties of windows can be greatly improved.
