Be smart - know how a thermalized aluminum window perform

  1. 1. Be Smart - Know how a Thermalized aluminum window perform
  2. 2. What is a Thermalized aluminum window? • In addition to having double or triple insulated glass, along with other performance options such as Thermal E+™ and tinting, a Thermalized window offers another important feature. • As the name itself indicates, the windows which helps to prevent heat entering into your home.
  3. 3. Do you know about thermal break? • The window frame and sash frames are insulated against heat and cold conduction. • This is done by separating the outside metal parts from the inside with a material such as polyurethane, greatly reducing the amount of heat or cold transferred through the frames. This feature is known as a thermal break or thermal barrier.
  4. 4. How does a Thermalized window perform? • Thermalized windows are manufactured from close-tolerance aluminum extrusions. • All of our thermal barrier aluminum frames are heat strengthened by bringing the raw aluminum up to a T5 temper to increase both strength and rigidity. • They have lower air leakage and higher resistance to heat transfer than non thermal break windows. With double glazing, they will stop 26% to 38% of the heat lost through comparable wood windows made at local millwork shops.
  5. 5. A thermalized aluminum window performance is equal to or better than well-made wood windows. • Thermalized aluminum windows dallas surpass strict industry specifications. • Air leakage with a 25 MPH wind blowing outside cannot exceed 0.375 cubic feet per minute (CFM) for every foot of weather-stripped window perimeter.
  6. 6. Do you believe..? • Our 700 Series Double Hung allows only 0.06 CFM air infiltration - one sixth of the industry standard! • Old, worn out windows often have rates of 1.5 or more, 25 times the air leakage of our best Thermalized aluminum windows!
  7. 7. Do Thermalized windows prevent condensation? • No window is condensation-proof. • Even walls will "sweat" under high humidity. Windows do not cause condensation; they simply prevent moisture from escaping and provide a surface that allows condensation to be readily seen. • If inside glass and frame surfaces on a Thermalized window show excessive moisture, you can be sure that moisture is also present in your walls and ceiling.
  8. 8. What is the recommended interior humidity level? • The maximum recommended interior relative humidity ranges from 15% at -20ºF to a maximum of 40% at +30º. • Many homes have been built "tighter" to conserve energy, leading to indoor humidity above the recommended levels. • The best way to handle high indoor humidity is to vent the moisture to the outside. • Bathrooms, kitchens and laundry areas should be vented with a fan, or by opening windows slightly when the areas are in use. If that does not help, a dehumidifier might be necessary.
