Energy-Star Windows Atlanta - Stop the Cold, Stop the Heat!

With energy-saving replacement windows, you are doing your part to help the earth. It's true. Vinyl replacement windows are green - one of the least expensive ways to improve your home's value and beauty. And with today's technological advances, they are also a smart way to save money for years to come.

Many homes in the U.S. have older, single pane glass (pre-1980). These homeowners should consider the cost-savings over the long-term by replacing windows with new double-pane windows that have high-performance glass (low-e or spectrally selective). According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, "low-e" windows can reduce your cooling by up to 15%. And cold-climate windows can reduce heat loss by as much as 50%.

Energy professionals know. In fact, the newest building for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in North Carolina was built with "low-e" and Argon gas windows. Read more about choosing Energy Star products for your home at the link below:

U-value measures heat conductivity through a window, or how well the window resists sunlight.The lower the U-value, the better the window.
