With your new energy efficient windows, you should see only a fair amount when there are very high temperature differences from the exterior of your property to the interior. During the summer months of hot humid air, condensation occurs on the exterior. As you begin to heat your property in the winter months, you will see condensation occurs on the interior. In both cases of extreme temperatures, the condensation will reduce over time and you can do a quick fix by slightly opening the window.
Insulated glass consists of at least 2 panes of glass. Air or inert gas seals the panes of glass. The performance of insulated glass helps control energy transfer from inside to outside of your property and vise versa.
This can indicate the effectiveness of insulated glass. A higher R-Value means a better resistance to heat loss.
Meaning for low-emissivity, it measures the amount of radiant heat transferred through a glass surface. The metal-oxide coatings on the windows we offer, reflects or absorbs the sun’s radiant thermal energy. Thermal emissivity is measured between 0 and 1, meaning the lower the value the more thermal energy is reflected.
Also shown as a number between 0 and 1, it measures how well the window blocks solar heat. The lower the number, the less solar heat is absorbed through the window.
Argon is an inexpensive, odorless, colorless and non-toxic inert gas that can be used in between panes of glass to increase insulation. It’s energy efficient and has higher sound proofing than air.
This measures the movement of heat and how well a product insulates. The lower the U-Value, the better the insulating ability of the product and less heat is lost. This value is important for the Chicagoland area.
It is a voluntary program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that assists both people and businesses decrease energy consumption to protect the environment, and save money through energy efficient products and practices.
