Performance

Windows That Make Sense
When temperatures soar, ordinary window glass just can't handle the heat. Tinted glass spoils the view. Energy efficient Windows, however, are specially formulated to reject the sun's heat without affecting the view. It lets more light in and keeps out the heat so your home stays cool and comfortable during the summer, while having the opposite effect by reflecting your heat back in during the winter.  Having special coatings provide the ultimate in performance and clarity. These windows can block up to 95% of the sun's damaging ultraviolet rays so it will help your furniture, carpets and curtains to stay beautiful for years to come.

Bold on Cold
During the cold weather, the insulating effect of your windows has a direct impact on how your rooms feel. Typically, 80% of the exposed surface of a window is glass, and the room-side of the glass directly affects the air temperature in the room. The better insulated the window glass, the warmer your room will be.

Performs Above The Norm!
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient - (SHGC) The amount of solar radiation that enters a building as heat. The lower the number, the better the window is at reducing heat loss.

U-Factor - This represents the heat flow rate through a window expressed in BTU/hr/ft/F using winter weather conditions of 0° F outside and 70° F inside. The smaller the number, the better the window is at reducing heat.

UV and Fading Transmission - These regions include all of the ultraviolet energy and most of the visible spectrum and will give the best representation of UV protection and relative fading rates.  The lower the number, the better the window is for reducing fading potential of carpets and interior furnishings.

In closing, the better the glass the more energy you save, keeping your money in your pocket, rather than the pockets of the power company.
