How Do Your Windows Affect Your Home’s Energy Efficiency?

Your windows play an important role in your home’s energy efficiency, influencing heating and cooling costs throughout the year.

Here’s how your windows impact your household’s energy use:

  • Insulation: When they aren’t well insulated, your windows can be a significant source of heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Energy-efficient windows that are double or triple-paned with low-emissivity (low-E) coatings can dramatically reduce this effect by providing better insulation, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
  • Solar heat gain: Your windows allow sunlight to enter your home, which can increase the temperature inside. While this might be beneficial in the winter, it can cause your air conditioning system to work harder in the summer. Low-E coatings on window glass help manage the solar heat gain by reflecting some of the sunlight.
  • Air leaks: Older windows or poorly installed new windows can lead to air leaks, where warm air escapes from your home during the winter and hot outdoor air enters during the summer. This leads to higher energy costs since your heating and cooling system needs to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. Proper window installation and maintenance, along with weatherstripping, will minimize air leakage.
  • Frame materials: The material your window frame is made from also affects energy efficiency. For example, metal frames conduct heat more rapidly than wood or vinyl, potentially leading to greater thermal transfer. Vinyl and fiberglass frames generally offer better insulation and are less prone to weather-related expansion and contraction.

What Are Low-E Window Coatings?

Low-E, or low-emissivity, window coatings are thin metallic layers applied to glass that control heat and light transfer through windows. These coatings improve the energy efficiency of windows by reflecting infrared light, which keeps heat inside during the winter and outside during the summer while still allowing full natural light to enter.

How Long Do Low-E Argon Windows Last?

Due to their insulating properties, low-E (low-emissivity) argon windows are a popular choice for enhancing energy efficiency in homes and buildings. The lifespan of these windows can vary based on several factors, including the quality of materials, installation, and environmental conditions. Generally, you can expect them to last 20 to 30 years with adequate maintenance.
