What Makes An Energy Efficient Window?

There are 3 key factors to ensuring your windows are energy efficient. They are the type of window frame, what Glazing or Glass is used and how the window operates e.g. how it opens.

The type of window frame used can be a decisive factor in how energy efficient windows are. The materials used to make the window frame vary in effectiveness in conducting heat, which contributes to the energy efficiency and U-factor of the window. Materials like vinyl, wood, fiberglass provide better thermal opposition the metal when it comes to ensuring your windows are energy efficient.

The type of window glazing or glass that is used will also affect how energy efficient the windows in your home are. It is vital that the energy performance rating of the window is correct for your home’s design, climate, and window orientation. This may result in different types of glazing in different parts of your home to increase energy efficiency.

Types of window glazing include Gas fills, Heat-absorbing tints, Insulated (these can be double-glazed windows or triple-glazed windows), Low-emissivity (Low-E) coatings, Reflective coatings for example. These glazes can be combined to increase the energy efficiency of the windows.

Lastly the way the double glazing operates can also play a significant part in how energy efficient windows are. This is due to fact that different operation types leak different rates of air than others. Reducing this air leakage will result in more effective energy efficient windows.

Awning, Casement, and Hopper windows are considered to have lower air leakage rates than Single hung and sliding & Double hung and sliding windows. This is because the window operating systems with the reduced amount of air leakage close by pushing against the frame, creating a energy efficient seal for the window.
