Energy Saving Windows for Hot’Lanta

alpharetta window replacementQ. How do I determine which windows and doors are energy-efficient?

A. An ENERGY STAR rating is your assurance that windows and doors will deliver effective thermal performance in your climate zone. Simonton windows provides energy saving windows and doors that meet strict criteria set forth by the EPA are ENERGY STAR-qualified.

Q. Which options do I select for my windows and doors to meet ENERGY STAR guidelines?

A. Simonton has taken the guesswork out of choosing energy-efficient glass packages that meet ENERGY STAR guidelines. Just choose the ENERGY STAR glass package based on your region’s climate zone. It’s that simple!

The premium vinyl used in our windows and doors is an excellent insulator and offers low conductivity. Its thermal properties are far superior to aluminum, steel and stainless steel. This means there is very low temperature transfer into or out of your home, helping keep you comfortable all year long.

Q. When it comes to energy efficiency, how do vinyl windows compare with windows made from other materials, such as wood and aluminum?

A. The premium vinyl used in Simonton’s windows and doors is inherently and excellent insulator. It’s far superior to aluminum, and comparable to most wood products. But unlike other materials, vinyl requires virtually no maintenance.


Low E Glass Coating

Simonton windows and doors are available with ProSolar® Low E glass. A transparent metallic oxide coating is applied to the glass surface that allows short-wave energy to pass through but reflects long-wave infrared energy for greater thermal efficiency. This helps heat to not be transferred through the window and door.

AR_EnergyEff_ProSolarShade For advanced Low E protection, Simonton offers ProSolar® Shade. This spectrally selective glass blocks damaging UV rays while allowing desirable light into the home, providing the ultimate in solar heat control, visibility and energy savings.

I.G. Unit Filled with Argon Gas The space inside an insulating glass unit—between the glass panes—may be filled with Argon gas, an odorless, non-toxic gas that is six times denser than air. With the added density of the gas, temperature transfer through the insulating glass unit is greatly reduced. In some areas of the country, we offer Krypton gas as an option. Krypton gas is even denser than Argon gas which further maximizes energy efficiency and reduced temperature transfer. Which can translate in to lower utility bills.
