High-Performance Window System

Building Science-to-Sales Translator

High-Performance Window System = High-Performance Window System

Technical Description

Homes with high-performance window systems are more comfortable and consume less energy than homes with traditional windows. High-efficiency ENERGY STAR-rated windows perform at least 15% better than a standard window and have an insulating value of R-3 or higher. Ultra-efficient windows perform at least 50% better than a standard window and have an insulating value of R-5 or higher. On average, they save homeowners 7% to15% on utility bills. These window systems use a combination of insulating frames and other features to reduce heat loss. They consist of two or three glass panes separated by insulating spacers and installed in insulated frames made of nonconductive wood, fiberglass, or vinyl. The space between the glass layers is filled with a nontoxic gas like argon or krypton that insulates better than air. The glass panes are coated with a low-emissivity coating that reflects sunlight and protects curtains, furniture, and hardwood floors from fading over time.
