The replacement windows installed by Jones & Associates are made using some of the most advanced features available today. The combination of Low-E glass, insulated frames, and technologically superior materials result in a window that reduces energy loss and cansignificantly lower the monthly energy bills for your West Texas home.
Stop the Loss of Energy Through Your Windows
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that up to 30% of a building’s energy (for heating or cooling purposes) is lost through inefficient windows. That’s like throwing almost one-third of the money you spend on your monthly energy bills out the window! Who can afford that?
That’s why having Jones & Associates replace your old windows with modern replacement windows that are engineered for superior energy efficiency is a great way to reduce energy use and lower your monthly bills.
Measuring Energy Savings
A window’s energy performance is measured by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), an independent laboratory that tests window function. Look for the NFRC label on the replacement windows we install on your home, paying particular attention to these values:
The most important measure of a window’s performance is its U-value. The U-value indicates the rate of heat flow through a window. The lower the U-value, the more energy efficient the window will be. U-value measures the entire window unit — glass, frame, sash, spacers — and is the only measurement accepted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Star program.
R-value is the measure of the resistance of glass to the flow of heat. The higher the R-value, the better the glass will be at insulating your home.
Energy Savings from the West Texas “Low-E” Glass Window Experts
The advanced technology that goes into a modern window includes remarkably energy-efficient glass packages. Here’s how they work.
Along with visible light and UV light, sunlight contains IR (or infrared) light. Infrared light is what we know as heat. “Low-e” glass has the ability to block out certain amounts of harmful UV light as well as certain amounts of IR light. Why is this important to you?
When IR light enters your home, it heats up whatever it touches. “Low-e” glass reflects this energy, keeping your home cool in the hot summer months. During the colder winter months, your home is heated by a furnace or other type of heating system. Your “low-e” glass will keep that heat from escaping by bouncing the heat energy it creates back into your home, instead of letting it out like your old, drafty windows.
The heat reflecting properties of “low-e” glass will help keep your energy costs down year round, making them the smart, economical choice when replacing the windows in your home.
New replacement windows from Jones & Associates are a smart investment in your home’s value and the safety and comfort of your family.
