Reasons to Choose Us for Energy Saving Windows
Your windows play a vital role in improving the quality of life in your home.

We offer a wide selection of energy saving windows in Lubbock, TX that let you enjoy a considerable amount on energy savings. Here are the elements that contribute to their superior energy performance.
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) measures a window’s energy performance through a variety of features. These include U-value, which rates the amount of heat flow through a window. A lower U-Value means the unit is more energy-efficient. This covers the whole window, including glass, frame, sash, and spacers. U-Value is the only measurement accepted by ENERGY STAR, the U.S. Department of Energy’s voluntary program.
An energy saving window should have superior insulating properties, and you can measure this through its R-Value. This rates the resistance of glass to the flow of heat. You’ll know that a window can prevent air infiltration and leakage if its glass has a high R-Value.
3. Low-E Glass
Advanced glass technology can also contribute to a window’s energy performance. Sunlight contains infrared light that radiates heat into your interiors, causing damage to your flooring, walls, and furniture. With Low-E glass, you can block infrared light and keep your home deliciously cool in summer. In cold winter months, this glass can prevent heated air from escaping your interiors. This helps reduce your costs for energy all year long.
