Energy Efficient Windows for Your Home in Houston, TX
Energy efficient windows: What are they, and are they a good choice for your home in Houston, Texas? An energy efficient window is any one that is purposefully designed to limit energy transfer and help make it less expensive for you to cool and heat your house. Today, in order for a window to legitimately be called energy efficient, it generally must have multiple panes of glass along with one or more of the following features:
- Low-E glass coating
- Warm-edge spacers
- Argon gas fills
- Weather stripping
At Gulf Coast Windows, all windows that we install in the Houston, Texas, area are energy efficient windows. Whether you go with frames made of vinyl, aluminum, or composite, the windows you receive from us will bear the ENERGY STAR certification label. In order to become ENERGY STAR certified, a window must meet or exceed stringent energy efficiency guidelines established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Upgrading to ENERGY STAR windows lowers home energy bills by 12 percent nationwide, on average. Doing so can be especially effective from a cost-savings standpoint when the windows being replaced have only a single pane.
