Homeowners are constantly looking for ways to make their homes more energy-efficient in an attempt to lower their energy bills every month. This can be accomplished in a number of ways, such as a roof or siding replacement project. Replacing your old fiberglass window is another good way to do this and when it comes to picking a replacement, Soft-Lite windows might be the best choice for you, here’s why:
1. Insulating Foam – Soft-Lite windows come equipped with eco-friendly foam-filled frames and sashes, which helps increase your Soft-Lite window’s energy value and make your home more comfortable in the process.
2. Low-E Glass – Low-Emissivity coatings on your windows is one of the tell-tale signs that the window is energy-efficient. This because these coatings can reduce the amount of harmful UV and infrared light that enters your home while providing natural light to reduce your reliance on artificial lighting. Thankfully, fiberglass or composite window from Soft-Lite comes with Low-E glass, making them energy-efficient choices for your home.
3. Vinyl Frames – Soft-Lite’s vinyl window frames are useful in making the window more-energy efficient as these frames are built with UV light stabilizers that prevents the sunlight from breaking the material down. This means that the frames are highly durable and require less maintenance. Additionally, they also have hollow cavities that allow more insulation to be added, increasing the window’s thermal performance.
4. Argon/Krypton Gas – Soft-Lite windows often come in double- and triple-panes, increasing the insulation for your home. During the manufacturing process, these panes are filled with krypton and argon gas to improve its thermal insulation efficiency, even more, meaning you can further lower your energy bills every month with Soft-Lite windows.
