WHAT MAKES A WINDOW ENERGY EFFICIENT?
What makes a window energy efficient is all in the type of frame, glazing, installation, and treatments applied. Below are some of the features you can incorporate to ensure your windows are as efficient as possible. Did you know that windows are responsible for up to 30% of a home's heat loss? This means that if your windows aren't energy efficient, you could be losing a lot of money on heating bills. If you are thinking about replacing your windows, or if you want to make your current windows more energy efficient, some of the factors to look out for are multiple window panes, quality frame materials, and low-emissivity glass coatings. And, remember, not all homes will benefit from energy efficient windows - you need to conduct a home energy audit to find out if your home is one of them.
