Energy Saving Windows
Cut Home Energy Costs with New Windows Virginia Beach
With energy costs rising every year, nobody can afford waste money heating and cooling their home. One of the best solutions for saving money is installing energy efficient windows from Atlantic Craftsman Co. in your home. You could reduce your monthly energy bill by almost one-third!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Energy Star Buildings Manual reports that, “windows almost always represent the largest source of unwanted heat loss and heat gain in buildings.” The EPA estimates windows in the U.S. account for 30% of lost building heating and cooling energy.
Most windows installed in homes built more than 10 years ago are inefficient, often with just a single pane of glass and no insulating properties. No wonder your heating system runs all winter and your air conditioner struggles to keep you comfortable during the summer heat!
The most effective way to reduce home energy loss is by installing energy-efficient replacement windows from Atlantic Craftsman Co. Our energy-efficient windows are engineered with high R-Values to keep your home snug and reduce energy costs. Each window is custom-fit to your home and is installed by our own skilled teams. Not only will you save money, our windows are also attractive, maintenance-free and come in a variety of styles.
Measuring Energy Efficiency
National standards have been established for rating the energy performance of replacement windows. These standards are tested and measure by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), an independent, non-profit organization that administers the only nationally accepted rating system for energy performance in windows, doors and skylights. You’ll find an NFRC label on every window installed by Atlantic Craftsman Co.
The important factors to look for in the NFRC report are:
- U-value measures how well a glass system prevents heat from escaping. The lower the U-value, the better the glass system.
- Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) measures how well a product blocks heat caused by sunlight.
- Visible Transmittance (VT) measures how much light comes through a product.
- Air Leakage (AL) The lower the AL, the less air will pass through cracks in the window assembly.
- Condensation Resistance (CR) measures the ability of a product to resist the formation of condensation on the interior surface of that product.
