What Type of Window is Most Energy Efficient?

Are the windows on your Madison, Wisconsin, home lacking the beauty and energy efficiency they once had?

Features to Look for in Your New Energy-Efficient Windows

So many companies claim to offer the best energy-efficient windows, but how can you really tell who’s telling the truth? You may not know who truly has “the best,” but you can tell which windows are going to provide the level of performance that your Madison home needs. That is, if you know to look for windows that feature:

Low-E glass – Low-emissivity glass reflects the sun’s rays and minimizes heat transfer. This makes your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, leading to a lighter workload for your HVAC system.

  • Argon gas fills – Less conductive than normal air, argon gas between the panes reduces energy transfer into and out of the home.
  • Double- or triple-paned glass – More panes means more layers of insulation between your home and the outside world, which means less energy transfer and a steadier temperature indoors.
  • ENERGY STAR® rating – Any window with an ENERGY STAR® rating is guaranteed to provide your home with outstanding efficiency.

We Offer Energy-Efficient Windows From Industry Leader ProVia

Frey Construction offers the best replacement windows around, with two main options from industry-leading manufacturer Provia: Aeris and Endure. The Aeris windows feature vinyl exteriors and hardwood interiors, while the Endure windows are fully vinyl. No matter which one you pick, you can be sure that they will have foam-filled sashes for added insulation and triple-paned glass to reduce heat transfer. Of course, as a Wisconsin, resident, you don’t need to be told how important it is to keep the inside of your home warm during the harsh winter months. These energy-efficient windows will help, plus the energy they will save your HVAC system as it works to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature can also lead to savings on your monthly energy bills. Now that’s a win-win.
