With the spring temperatures constantly fluctuating and the heat of summer on its way, now is the perfect time to replace your old windows with something new. Double-paned windows can provide your Frederick home with year round benefits. Let’s take a moment to discuss how these insulated windows work and what they can do for your home.
The Benefits of Insulated Windows
Whether you choose double or triple-paned windows for your window replacement, these windows will keep your home comfortable all year long. They will keep your home cozy and warm during the winter months and cool during the warm spring and summer. Energy-efficient home improvements, like installing insulated windows, can not only lower your heating and cooling costs but actually give you some tax benefits as well. ENERGY STAR is one of the leading government programs providing tax breaks for homeowners who install energy-efficient products in their home. These products are independently certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) and must meet strict guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For windows to be considered energy-efficient, they must be insulated. But what does the term insulated windows mean?
How Do Insulated Windows Work?
All glass-paned windows tend to gain and lose heat by conduction, convection, and air seepage. But by using less conductive materials, there is a greater chance of impeding the heat transfers from occurring. By using special coatings and multiple panes of glass, your new insulated windows will be able to keep the air inside your home at a comfortable temperature. Double-paned windows are made up of two panes of glass or vinyl. These panes are separated by a small amount of argon, krypton, or other gasses. This gas creates the insulating effect and helps to reduce the transfer of heat by about 50 percent. Installing insulated windows in your home will help reduce this transfer and keep your home cooler longer. So what are you waiting for?
