Energy Saving Windows Terminology to Watch for
What is Low E coating?
Low E coatings are applied to the glass and work by reflecting or absorbing infra-red light (heat). Typically Low-E coatings utilize a metallic coating on the glass. Some Low-E coatings also help protect against the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays which cause fading of interior furnishings.
What is Argon gas?
Argon is used for thermal insulation in energy efficient windows because it is inert and has low thermal conductivity. The less heat that is transferred, more cooler your home stays in the summer and the warmer it stays in the winter.
What is Krypton gas?
Like Argon, Krypton is used for thermal insulation in energy efficient windows because it is inert and has low thermal conductivity. The less heat that is transferred, more cooler your home stays in the summer and the warmer it stays in the winter. But krypton is more efficient in smaller gaps between the glass panes thus why it is used typically in triple pained windows. It is also more expensive than argon.
What is U-Factor?
The U-factor (sometimes labeled U-value) is measurement of how well window materials conduct heat. A smaller U-factor is better at reducing heat transfer and thus more efficient against heat loss.
What is R-value?
Like the U-Factor, R-value is another measurement of the resistance to heat flow through a window. A higher R-value is better at reducing heat transfer and thus more efficient against heat loss.
What is Design Pressure (DP) rating?
Design Pressure (DP) rating represents the maximum pressure that a window or door can experience without breaking, deglazing or permanently distorting. For example, a window with a DP30 rating is the equivalent to a 110mph wind speed pressures and a DP40 rating is the equivalent to a 127mph wind speed pressures.
Both water penetration and structural testing are based on a window’s DP rating. Water infiltration is tested at 15% and structural is tested at 150% of the DP rating. That typically means that the higher the DP rating the higher the water resistance and structural durability of the window as well.
ENERGY STAR is an EPA standard to help consumers select high-efficiency products which are more environmentally friendly. ENERGY STAR labels on windows indicate the products use less energy, allowing you to save money and for the windows to pay for themselves over time.
