Every aspect of a window contributes to a particular function. The glass and the frame, although they essentially serve the same purposes – to illuminate a room, to prevent air leakage, etc. – come in different forms to address different issues. The best windows, of course, are able to address virtually any need. One such need is insulation.
A way to find out if the window that you’re about to purchase is great at serving this need is by looking at its U-Value, which is also known as the U-Factor. According to the National Fenestration Rating Council, the U-factor is a measure of a product’s capacity to transfer heat. The ideal is to get low u-factor glass for your windows in Lehigh Valley. Low U-factor is essential for three important reasons:
- Energy-efficiency. Low U-Factor windows are much more energy-efficient and provide better insulation compared to other kinds of windows because they reduce heat or cold transfer and diminish the need for excessive use of cooling and heating systems, which consume energy.
- Comfort. A home with good insulation is more comfortable because you can better control the temperature to your preference and keep it at that level.
- Environmentally friendly. In order to produce energy, heating systems undergo a process that emits harmful elements into the air, contributing to pollution. If there is a reduction in the consumption of energy, there will also be less production of harmful pollution.
Not only can you reduce the amount you pay for energy bills every month, you can also help reduce pollution. Consider hiring a dealer, like us at Renewal® by Andersen of Northeast PA, for the best options in low u-factor windows.
