Drafty old windows make it harder to heat and cool your home by allowing air to leak out which drives up your utility bills. Energy efficient windows solve this problem. New windows installed by PJ Fitzpatrick will stop the exchange of air from outside. Your furnace or air conditioner will no longer struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature. Your wallet will get a break from high energy bills, and you’ll feel more comfortable inside your home.
The vinyl or fiberglass construction of modern windows does not favor the conduction of heat. This differs greatly from old aluminum windows that allow outside temperatures to penetrate into your home. The window installation experts at PJ Fitz will further enhance the energy efficiency with insulation. We’ll insulate the gaps around the frame during installation and seal the seams inside and out.
Low-E Glass Windows
A microscopic layer of metallic oxides covers the glass of new windows. This creates low-e glass that reduces solar heat penetration. By reflecting ultraviolet rays, the glass significantly lowers the amount of heat from the blazing sun that enters a room. This means that your air conditioner will have less heat to contend with when cooling your home.
Gas-Filled Double Pane Windows
Instead of using an old-fashioned single pane of glass, modern windows use two panes. This feature creates an insulating barrier between the outside and inside. To improve the insulation, manufacturers of energy efficient windows fill the gap with argon or krypton gas. The high density of these gases diminishes air transfer with the outdoors.
