Energy Efficiency Part 1: Why Quality Windows are Important

Improving your home’s energy efficiency by replacing your windows is one of the best investments you can make for your home. According to studies, up to 23% of the energy used to cool and heat buildings is lost through inefficient windows. Preventing energy loss leads to significant savings and a more comfortable home.

What’s The Problem With Inefficient Windows?

Old, damaged, and inefficient windows often have cracks where conditioned air escapes. This makes it harder for your utilities to maintain the temperature you want. Inefficient windows also have regular glass, which has low thermal resistance. This means that outside weather can more easily affect your indoor temperature, leading to higher energy bills. Our energy-efficient windows in Sugar Land, Texas address these problems.

How Can Our Windows Help?

Our windows feature our special Fibrex® material frames and our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. These innovations help improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. Our Fibrex frames stay stable and rigid under any kind of temperature change. This reduces the risk of air leaks. In addition, they won’t crack, chip, rot, corrode, blister, or peel. There’s little chance of conditioned air escaping your replacement bow, bay, specialty, casement, double-hung or sliding windows in Sugar Land, Texas.
