“Replacement windows will save you money on your energy bills!” you hear all the time. “Replacement windows will improve the energy efficiency of your home!” – However, how exactly do they assist? You may not know how much energy (and money) you’re squandering due of your windows if they’re old and outdated. Most old windows lack the premium energy efficiency features included in new replacement windows, resulting in skyrocketing energy expenditures. Ameritech Construction replacement windows come with top-of-the-line features to improve your home’s energy efficiency.

The glass is energy efficient

Your windows are most likely builder-grade single pane windows if they are original to your property. Single-pane windows feature only one pane of glass, providing little or no insulation against the elements. Ameritech Construction’s replacement windows come in a range of glass selections to give your house the energy efficiency boost it need.

Consider replacing your windows with double pane glass if you want to improve your home’s energy efficiency on a budget. These windows include two Low-E coated glass panes, providing superior energy efficiency at an affordable price. Double-pane windows block up to 80% of UV rays from entering your house, keeping your home pleasant while preventing fading of your furnishings and carpeting.

We recommend upgrading your windows with triple pane glass for optimal energy efficiency. Triple-pane windows contain three panes of energy-efficient glass, keeping your house warm and toasty. These windows block up to 90% of UV rays from entering your home, protecting it from sun damage. Triple pane windows come in two styles: Ultra and Ultimate, allowing you to select the finest solution for your house. If you want the most energy efficiency, go with Ultimate triple pane glass, which has the same benefits as Ultra triple pane glass but adds UV protection.

Whatever window glass you pick, you can rest assured that you will save money on your energy costs all year.

Glass that is a Low-E Window

One of the most crucial components of your new windows is the glass. Low-emissivity glass, also known as Low-E glass, is used in replacement windows from Ameritech Construction to keep your house warm no matter the season. Low-E glass reflects sunlight and heat away from your windows, preventing harmful UV rays from getting through. In the summer, this glass helps to keep your home cool, lessening the load on your air conditioner.

Silver oxide is used to coat low-E glass, making it a cost-effective alternative with outstanding reflection qualities. Low-E glass and silver oxide, in combination with the gas between your windowpanes, make your windows well-insulated. Ameritech Construction’s replacement windows include Argon gas between the panes to increase insulation and reduce heat transmission through your windows. This gas aids in bringing the temperature of your window closer to that of your room.

System of Spacers

Window spacers are essential for maintaining the comfort of your house. The amount of heat or cold that may flow through the windowpanes is determined by the spacers that separate the glass panes. Ameritech Construction’s replacement windows include top-of-the-line Super Spacer technology, which reduces heat loss through your windows. When shopping for new windows, remember that the lower the rate of heat loss, commonly known as the U Value, the higher the window’s energy efficiency.
