Energy Efficient Glass
Associations & Accreditations
In these days of sky-high energy costs and serious environmental concerns, there really isn’t any good reason to be using anything other than energy efficient glass in the windows and doors of your home or commercial building. If you don’t have energy efficient glass installed, then you literally have money going out the window.
Replacing all your glass might sound like an expensive undertaking, but actually it’s going to cost you a lot less than leaving things as they are. If the upfront cost is a significant concern, one way to deal with this is to upgrade one window or door at a time. The savings will take a bit longer to fully kick in this way, but it does allow you to micro-manage the costs.
Another method is to use a clever financing strategy, where you recover the cost of your financing repayments via the energy savings you’re making. And remember, this is an upgrade investment for your home, so no bank anywhere is going to tell you it’s a bad idea. To do this effectively, you will need a very solid understanding of your energy costs, and expert advice from the energy consultants at Ultimate Windows who can show you how much you can potentially expect to save from upgrading. When you understand the numbers, you can make them work for you.
Everything You Should Know About Energy Efficient Glass
Energy efficient glass is not the same as regular glass. It is different on a molecular level, and affects the way heat energy and light energy travel through the glass. First, the glass itself may be treated with a special coating to help reflect more heat energy from the surface. Second, a layer of gas between the panes can further diffuse excess heat energy. The best thing is that this works in both directions, so your home can be cooler in summer and warmer in winter, while using less energy.
Why This Energy Efficient Glass Works Well
Ordinary glass is an excellent thermal conductor. That’s why you always get superior performance from glass bottles for chilling drinks compared to if plastic bottles are used. Glass allows the warmth of the liquid inside the bottle to easily be transferred to the colder air outside the bottle, giving your drink a more intense chill. The special coating on the outside of thermally efficient glass disrupts its thermal conductivity, slowing down the speed with which heat can travel through it.
When panes of specially treated glass are used in double glazing, the thermal efficiency factor can be ramped up much more by adding a gas such as argon, which will filter UV light, effectively blocking about 85% of UV potential. This is a massive insulating effect.
Why is argon so effective? The name of this gas is derived from a Greek word meaning “lazy”, which is a bit of a clue. Argon basically works because it is invisible but also very dense, about a third more dense than air. This makes it able to passively cool air by seriously slowing down the thermal transfer rate. By the time that UV energy gets through the gas, it has already lost most of its intensity.
