Energy Efficient Window Options

Choosing The Right Glass

Where you live has a lot to do with the type of glass you should purchase.  Thermal performance options like Low-E glass and argon gas can be added, but selecting the right combination is as important as selecting the right window configurations for your home.

When a room faces the sun for the majority of the day, we recommend one type of Low-E glass for maximum solar control.  Other rooms with less exposure can use less expensive Low-E glass.  If your home has “cold spots” or “hot spots” we recommend using windows with insulating argon gas for maximum energy efficiency.

If you have year-round shade from trees and shrubbery, you may not need a glass option that further reduces light transmittance, so your selection should be a literal reflection of your home and rooms’ locations.
