Insulating features such as heat-reflecting low-E coatings and argon gas between glass panes have become standard with replacement windows. Would you willingly toss 30 percent of your energy dollars out the window? Not likely. On the other hand, that’s how much of a typical home’s heating and cooling is lost through its windows and doors.
A side-by-side field test in two identical homes was conducted to evaluate the impact of high performance windows on space cooling demand under realistic conditions. Older residential building stock consists of single-family homes with clear, single-pane, aluminum frame windows. Such windows can lead to considerable heat gain.
In the summer installed Replacement Windows with Low-E coated glass reflect outside heat away from your windows. During the cooler winter months Low-E glass reflects the existing heat back inside your home—so your home retains its warmth.
A window’s thermal performance – which can be measured at the center of glass, the edge of glass and the frame – is rated with a U-factor, its overall ability to resist heat flow.
The amount of heat from direct sunlight through a window is measured as Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). The lower the coefficient, the less solar heat comes through the window.

Better Homes and Garden magazine listed the front door as the #1 way to boost curb appeal. It states”A new front door instantly enhances your home’s appearance, and what’s more, it can greatly increase resale value. A recent study by door manufacturer Therma-TRU found that upgrading the front door of a house increased the perceived value of a $190,000 home by almost $8000. Estimates for a new entry door starts around $2500, so you could actually make back triple the money you spend.”
