Indoor comfort is seldom on your mind more than in the midst of a Madison WI winter. Installing new vinyl Envirosealed windows increases energy efficiency and year-round peace of mind. These high-tech replacement windows in the Alliance window family are specifically designed as upgrades during remodeling.
Vinyl windows are the top choice for new and replacement windows. This specific line is in demand because windows are maintenance-free, strong, environmentally-friendly and energy efficient. They are engineered with the latest energy saving materials and technology.
Saving energy is the most talked about reason to replace existing windows. Reducing heating and cooling costs is a solid incentive. However, professionals advise against expecting miracles. Recovering the cost of high-quality windows through monthly energy savings is a long-term investment. It is true that significant savings will show up on heating and cooling bills as soon as new windows are installed. However the most immediate return on the overall investment is increased comfort year around.
Modern window designs keep you and your family comfortable in winter’s cold and summer’s heat.
How Envirosealed Windows Perform
Built of the highest-quality vinyl and featuring fusion-welded frames and sashes these windows are durable. The key element in the design is the latest in insulated, high-energy glass. The high-tech glass provides excellent thermal performance – its ability to keep heat in during winter and out during summer.
Headlining the windows’ performance features is triple low E coated, argon gas-filled insulated glass systems. Exclusive InnovativE® glass with its high-tech Duralite® composite warm-side spacers improve the overall energy efficiency of the windows.
The insulated glass is an invisible barrier to keep indoor temperatures from the extremes found outside.
Energy is lost through windows in three basic ways:
- Conduction – heat moves along surfaces and is dispersed or lost. Vinyl is a natural insulator so that’s a good stary. The warm edge spacers in the window frames are low conduction materials. They effectively block the flow of heat.
- Convection – heat is naturally lost in the air and through glass. Our insulated windows with ¾-inch thick panes have proven to be the most efficient to prevent convection currents.
- Radiation – when long-wave heat energy moves toward cold areas. For windows it’s out during winter and in during summer. A Low E coating slightly tints the glass to keep radiant heating at a minimum. The special coating reflects heat.
The U-value – the insulating measurement for glass – improves by up to .04 with both Low E insulated glass and in-frame insulation. That doesn’t seem like much, true. But a small increase like this will reduce the production of Carbon Monoxide (CO2) by from 1,200 to 1,600 pounds a year. That translated into energy savings. Not to mention reducing CO2 emissions in to the atmosphere.
