Every property owner looks for ways and means of improving the energy-efficiency of their property and its why they choose the appliances and equipment carefully and look for energy-ratings; in addition, they may use UV-resistant exterior paint and roof tiles, add insulation to the walls, use LED lighting and more.
While all of these methods are effective in improving the energy-efficiency of the property, you can also significantly improve this aspect by installing energy-efficient glass windows and doors. This is where Residential & Commercial Glass Services come into the picture. We at Diversified Glass and Mirror are the experts that can provide excellent energy-efficient glass door and window features.
Energy-Efficient Windows- Different Aspects
When it comes to energy-efficiency, the windows are generally the weakest link in the construction. If you have older wood and glass windows they can result in a significant loss of air-conditioned or heated air from the indoor spaces and increase your energy bills.
Since they don’t provide sufficient insulation from the outdoor environment it impacts the energy-efficiency of your home or commercial property. There are a number of different aspects that have to be kept in view while deciding which windows to purchase for your property, such as:
- Two/three-paned windows- A single-paned window feature leaks air and does nothing to improve the energy-efficiency of your home. But if you opt for 2/3-paned windows, they will considerably increase the energy-efficiency. While the upfront cost of these installations is higher than standard windows, they pay for themselves in the amount you save on your utility bills over the long-term.
- Insulating gas- These windows also have insulating gases sandwiched between the panes. Some of the commonly used gases are Xenon. Krypton and Argon. Since these are extremely dense and invisible, they are the ideal option for insulation. If you have very large glass windows and doors on your property, windows that have these gases in them can help improve the energy-efficiency to a great extent.
- E-coating– These are thin, low-emissivity coatings that have to be applied to one side of the window or door glass. The surface on which these are applied will be dependent on what the climatic conditions in your region are. For instance, if you live in an area with a colder climate, these can be used to allow the heat to infiltrate the indoor space and in hot climates, they can be used to reflect all the heat outwards.
In addition to all these things, we also use sustainable window and door framing materials such as vinyl or composite. As an experienced Residential & Commercial Glass Services’ provider, we will provide you all the information you need about these materials, will understand what your specific requirements are and will provide solutions accordingly.
