Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
The windows on a home make a big difference in energy efficiency levels. Drafty windows that don’t seal properly, single pane glass that lacks treatments to filter UV rays and poor insulation levels contribute to heat transfer through the year and drive up energy costs. With Simonton Windows from Home Exterior Systems, homeowners can now enjoy beautiful modern windows that are also energy efficient.
Low E Glass
Low-E has been in use since the 1980s when manufacturers started putting this coating on the interior of windows. A form of tinting that still allows light to flood the room, it also prevents heat transfer from raising the temperature inside a building. This thin coating actually creates another layer of insulation on the glass, and that makes Simonton windows one of the most energy efficient options available.
Single pane windows do very little to stop heat transfer, so manufacturers started offering double pane windows. Now considered the standard, double pane windows reduce heat loss due to the void of air between the two panes. Simonton increases the energy efficiency rating further by filling that void with argon gas. Argon is 35 percent less conductive than regular air, so the movement of heat is slowed further. The temperature of the glass is also increased to reduce condensation and maintain a more stable temperature. A noble gas, argon also will not react with other materials, so windows are less likely to start corroding as they age.
Simonton is dedicated to producing high quality windows, and they have a unique seal that is more energy efficient and weather tight. Their windows feature rail overlaps that interlock tightly, so air is kept out and homes remain more energy efficient. Properly sized and installed by the professional team at Exterior Home Systems, these windows will help homeowners reduce their energy expenses.
Tax rebates and savings have returned. Homeowners installing Energy Star qualified windows from Simonton can take a discount on their taxes. The credit is equal to 10 percent of the product cost up to $200 for eligible windows and skylights. This is a convenient way to help reduce the cost of replacement windows.
