Energy Saving New or Replacement Windows

Energy efficient windows deliver cost savings to your air conditioning and heating bills. Ask your family, friends or neighbors who have installed energy saving windows, and they will confirm lower gas, electric and power bills after installing the se new windows. Or, you can call us at 760.806.6830, and we will show you examples and testimonials of cost savings of more than half, from new or replacement energy efficient windows.).

An energy-efficient window will have (at a very minimum):

  • Double-pane insulated glass.
  • Heat-resistant (Low-E) glass coating.
  • Airtight frames.
  • An ENERGY STAR® rating.

Two of the more energy efficient frame materials are:

Vinyl and Fiberglass Frame Windows

  • They both reduce heat transfer and contribute to insulation value.
  • Both can be constructed with chambers within the frame to increase strength and insulation, while reducing sound and noise levels.

Dual Pane Glass Windows:

  • Dual-pane designs use an air or gas-filled space between two panes of glass-superior insulation to single pane windows.
  • Special low emissivity (called “Low-E’)  coating on the glass blocks out infrared light, to keep heat inside in the San Diego area winter, and outside in the warm Southern California summers.
  • Low E coated windows filter the UV (ultraviolet) light (UV) to help protect interior furnishings from fading.

Also, window spacers help make windows energy efficient.

Window Spacers

  • A spacer –designed and spaced the correct distance between the dual glass panes-provides optimal airflow between each window pane.
  • Too much or too little airflow can affect the overall efficiency of window glass insulation.
  • The window spacer affects expansion and contraction-reducing dreaded window condensation.

New Windows For Noise Reduction: Oceanside, Escondido, San Diego

Whether you live next to a busy San Diego highway, in a North County subdivision with plenty of outdoor activity, or simply require more privacy, new windows can be an effective solution to reduce the outside noise of your San Diego or North County residence. Make sure you discuss the sound reduction advantages of new windows with your window installation contractor. (You can contact us at 760.806.6830, or visit our website for more information).

The modern world can be a noisy place. Particularly if you live near a highway, such as I-5 and I-15, or Highways 76 and 78. You may live near Sprinter track lines, and hear the train noise on their daily scheduled runs. There’s also the sounds heard from the neighborhood-lawn mowers, leaf blowers, gas-powered hedge clippers, children playing-you get the idea.

Whether your home is in the heart of San Diego, or in the suburbs of North County-Escondido, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside-there are lots of ways noise can invade your space and disrupt your serenity. If outside noise is an issue where you live, consider new windows-they conserve energy, block out the heat and cold from entering your home, and can block out noise levels also. Remember-noise commonly enters a room through windows:
• Windows are one of the biggest culprits in allowing noise to get in your home.
• Low-quality windows might create an insulation and sound problem.
• Single glass panes and wood window frames are generally the least resistant to noise.

Consider replacing the window with a double pane window:
• Double pane glass can reduce noise by up to 20 percent Special noise reduction windows can even further insulate your home from noise.
• Different thicknesses of glass block different frequencies of sound. To block more frequencies of sound, the panes should be different thicknesses.
Double pane windows that are spaced apart block out sound more effectively. The more space between layers of glass in a window, the more effective that window will be at blocking sound. The amount of spacing between the panes will also affect energy efficiency, so make sure to discuss this option with your window contractor specialist, to figure out how much space you really need between window panes. Watch this video of double paned glass windows that are thermally broken for insulation and weather protection:

Vinyl Framed Windows Block Out Noises: Up To 50%:
Windows with vinyl frames, or windows that come with an acrylic frame, are designed for noise reduction-sometimes reducing decibel levels by as much as half, or 50 percent. Wood and glass window frames, although giving aesthetic value, do not block much sound.

Laminated Windows For Noise Reduction:
Laminated glass is another common solution for noise reduction. Laminated glass is formed by bonding together two pieces of glass with a layer of resilient plastic film between them. In addition to effective blockage of sound, laminated glass also blocks ultraviolet rays from the sun.

Call T Group today at 760.806.6830 for ideas on how new or replacement windows for your home can reduce noise levels, save you money, and better your lifestyle.
