The Main Features of Energy Efficient Windows:

Frame Materials

Low maintenance and durable framing materials help to insulate your home and reduce heat transfer.

Multiple Panes

Two panes of glass, with air or gas filling the center, insulate much better than standard single pane windows.

Some windows even include 3 or more panes for increased energy efficiency.

Low-E Glass

Low-E stands for low emissivity.

This glass has a special coating reflecting infrared light, keeping heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer.

This glass also reflects ultraviolet light which can protect furniture inside from fading.

Gas Fills

In between the panes of glass, some windows have krypton, argon, or other odorless, colorless, non-toxic gases that insulate better than air.

Warm Edge Spacers

Space keeps the glass panes a certain distance apart, they also insulate the edges of the window to reduce heat transfer.
