Conduction Conduction occurs when heat travels through solid objects. In a home, conduction is the most important factor in terms of energy loss.
Loose-fitting, leaky windows waste energy and money A 1/16” gap around a window = 1 brick 12 windows with 1/16” gaps = 12 bricks Air Infiltration Air infiltration occurs when the window frames and sash don’t fit tightly, leaving small gaps around the window. These gaps may be small, but they can cost you big money in energy bills.
Solar Heat Gain
Solar heat gain is the movement
of energy through space. The
sun’s rays come down into your
home, thus causing heat gain
which increases your air conditioning costs. Exposure to
sunlight can cause premature
Condensation is the build-up of
moisture on the glass panes and
occurs when moist, warm air
meets a colder surface. It supports
mold and bacteria growth.
Condensation can damage:
Old, leaky windows let
your dollars fly right out

Windows with laminated
glass are difficult to penetrate.
Even with repeated blows from
heavy objects, glass won’t fall out
inside the home preventing access
to your home from intruders. Plus laminated glass increases

E NERGY S TAR ® E NERGY S TAR ® is an independent government program labeling the energy efficiency of various products. Because the United States covers such a large area, E NERGY S TAR ® guidelines have been tailored to meet three specific regions. These regions are established for the window program.
Energy Star To be labeled as an E NERGY S TAR ® product, the U-factor and SHGC rating must be less than or equal to those established by E NERGY S TAR ® .
NFRC Rating U-Factor is the measurement of how much heat escapes through the product. The lower the U-factor, the better the product prevents heat from escaping. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient is a measurement of the sun-shielding properties of the product and its ability to absorb or reflect Solar heat. The lower the SHGC, the better the product is at protecting against heating caused by sunlight. Visible Trans is how Much light you can see coming through the window.
