NEW ENERGY EFFICIENT WINDOWS REALLY DO SAVE YOU MONEY!
The Bristol and Marvin replacement windows installed by Twin Cities Siding Professionals include some of the most advanced features available today. The combination of Low-E glass, insulated frames and technologically superior materials result in a window that reduces energy loss and can significantly lower the monthly energy bills for your Twin Cities home.
UP TO 30% ENERGY LOSS THROUGH YOUR WINDOWS!
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that up to 30% of a building’s energy (for heating or cooling purposes) is lost through inefficient windows. That’s like throwing almost one-third of the money you spend on your monthly energy bills out the window! Who can afford that?
That’s why having Twin Cities Siding Professionals replace your old windows with modern windows that are engineered for superior thermal performance is essential.
MEASURING A WINDOW’S PERFORMANCE
Industry standards have been established for rating the energy performance of replacement windows.
The most important measure of a window’s performance is its U-value. The U-value indicates the rate of heat flow through a window. The lower the U-value, the more energy efficient the window will be. U-value measures the entire window unit — glass, frame, sash, spacers — and is the only measurement accepted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s EnergyStar program.
R-value is the measure of the resistance of glass to the flow of heat. The higher the R-value, the better the glass will be at insulating your home. But R-value is NOT an accepted form of measurement by the National Fenestration Research Council (NFRC) or EnergyStar, as it does not measure the overall window unit.
What is the NFRC?
The National Fenestration Research Council (NFRC) is an independent, non-profit organization that administers the only nationally accepted rating system for energy performance of windows, doors and skylights. The NFRC provides fair, accurate and reliable energy performance ratings so that architects, engineers, builders, code officials, contractors and homeowners can compare different products and make informed choices. You will find an NFRC label on any window you purchase from Twin Cities Siding Professionals.
