Homeowners often fail to realize that new windows do more than reduce energy costs. They also boost the curb appeal and add to the home's security, WindowReplacementofHouston.com reports
energy efficient windows in the home will not only help to reduce energy costs but will also boost the value of the home. However, when a person goes to replace home windows, he or she needs to determine which type of window is best for local weather conditions. Guardian Windows serves as the leading provider of energy-efficient and high-quality window brands and offers the ultimate shopping convenience for customers. The team will be of great help to customers when it comes to determining which window brand is appropriate for the home.— Up to 30 percent of heating and cooling costs for a home is the result of heat loss and gain through windows.

"What is appropriate in a cold climate may not be adequate in areas where the weather is warm year round. Furthermore, the windows must be properly installed if they are to provide the maximum level of efficiency, and the installation steps differ based on the type of home where the windows are to be installed. For this reason, professionals should be called in to take on this task," Marty Scarpati, spokesperson for Guardian Windows, explains.
Homes in a colder climate need windows that are filled with gas. These windows should come with a low-e coating to minimize heat loss, and a low U-factor is needed as it offers better thermal resistance. This is nothing more than the rate of non-solar heat flow.
"In contrast, homes in a warm climate require windows that have been coated with a substance designed to reduce heat gain. Furthermore, these windows should have a low solar heat gain efficient or SHGC. This also helps to minimize heat gain in this type of climate," Scarpati continues. "Regardless of where one lives, it is best to purchase windows with both a low U-factor and low SHGC to save on energy bills,"
When searching for a vinyl window replacement product, consumers need to look at the SHGCs and U-factor for the whole unit. Often, individuals examine the SHGCs and u-factors for the center of the glass. This does not provide an accurate picture of the overall product's energy efficiency, which is why the whole unit figures must be used.
