Traditional windows often lead to unnecessary heat loss, condensation problems and a headache for the homeowner. That is the very reason why windows have undergone a major technological evolution in recent times. With this drastic change, it is now possible to have reduced heat loss and a low rate of air leakage.
Energy-efficient windows can benefit you in the following ways:
Insulation – Energy-efficient windows usually come with an R-value certification. It helps to determine the heat resistant capacity of the material that a window is made up of. A high R value on a window material states a high heat-resisting capacity of the window. Traditional single pane windows have an R value of 1. Usually window panes with an R value up to 3 are considered to be energy-efficient. Such window systems can help you save up on your heating and cooling bills.
Light and Noise Reduction – Energy-efficient windows usually have reflective coatings that help to block sunlight. This helps in maintaining a relaxing light-level during the daytime. Multi-paned windows help in noise reduction.
Value – It’s not just the reduced energy bills that you get from these energy-efficient window panes. A house that is equipped with energy-efficient features is considered to be more marketable, and for good reason. It can increase the market value of a house and can decrease your tax burden at the same time.
