Energy-efficient products are surging in popularity these days, and house windows are no exception. Equipping your home with energy-efficient windows is a smart choice if you’re interested in making life easier for your HVAC system and your bank account, and calling Home Genius Exteriors is an even better choice because you’ll need a window installer that provides top-notch products, craftsmanship, and customer service.
One of our hallmarks as a company is keeping a healthy line of communication with our customers on every project. With that in mind, we don’t want to sell you on energy-efficient windows without first helping you understand how they work.
What Makes a Window Energy Efficient?
There are two things to know that will help paint a clearer picture of how energy-efficient windows work: what heat transfer is and how it can be controlled.
Heat Transfer 101
As you may remember from science class, warm air rises and cold air sinks. But warm air also tends to move to colder areas to balance out the temperature difference—and house windows give warm air a way in and out of your home. So, the term “heat transfer” is used to describe the way warm air enters from the outdoors in hot weather and escapes from your home in cold weather.
Keeping Temperatures Under Control
When warm air is free to come and go as it pleases, your home’s indoor temperature will fluctuate. That can have a noticeable effect on your monthly heating and cooling costs. The energy-efficient windows we install keep heat transfer in check with low-E coatings on each pane of glass, gas fills between the panes, and foam-filled frames, which all work together to prevent warm air from going wherever it wants.
