What Makes A Window Energy Efficient?

Multi-pane windows are a more energy efficient option than single pane windows. Multiple panes of glass are used in insulated glass units (IGUs). Unlike single pane windows, multi-pane units have space between panels of glass that can be filled with inert gasses to provide a barrier against heat flow.

Double pane windows have become the standard in window units but you can also choose windows with triple pane glass packages.

Low-E Glass

Low-E stands for low emissivity. When heat or light hits the glass in a window, two things can happen. The first is the heat or light energy can be convected away by moving air. The second is that the heat or energy can be reradiated by the glass surface which means the energy is further absorbed through the glass.

According to the Efficient Windows Collaborative (EWC), 84% of long-wave radiation that strikes a clear glass surface is absorbed by the glass and only 16% is reflected. Compare to a glass with low-e coatings, only 4% is absorbed and 96% is reflected.

Low-e coatings reduce the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that enters your home through glass without minimizing the amount of light that enters your home.

Gas Fills

Gas fills improve the thermal performance of windows by reducing the conductance of the air space between multiple layers of glass. Without gas fillers, air currents between the glass carry heat to the top of the sealed glass unit and colder air settles at the bottom.

Inert gas like argon or krypton fill the space and minimize the convection currents thereby reducing conduction through the gas as well as overall heat transfer between the interior temperatures and exterior temperatures.

EWC notes that the optimal spacing is about ½” between panes being filled with argon gas and ¼” between panes using a krypton gas filler.

Warm Edge Spacers

Spacers are used to separate multiple panes of glass in a window unit. Spacers also accommodate the stress of thermal expansion and contraction and provide a moisture barrier to prevent water passage or fog in the glass unit. Additionally, spacers also provide a gas-tight seal to prevent the loss of gas fills. Warm edge spacers are those specifically designed to improve thermal performance.

On their own, each of these elements doesn’t mean much but together they can make a high performing unit. With custom windows, you have the option to build windows that will meet or exceed your local energy codes.
