Lower heating, cooling and lighting costs, improved performance, and a reduced carbon footprint from less energy loss. These are just a few of the benefits of installing energy efficient windows.
Always hire a professional to install efficient windows for your home.
Look for triple-paned low-e argon filled glazing with vinyl or fiberglass casings.
U-Value is the amount of heat loss the window allows. In Edmonton, look for a 1.25 or lower. Solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) is the fraction of solar radiation admitted through the window - look for a 0.4.
Our Home Energy Retrofit Accelerator (HERA) may have a rebate for this.
