IS IT TIME TO REPLACE?

GRAVINA’S IS THE PLACE WHEN IT COMES TO REPLACING YOUR WINDOWS

Interested in replacing your windows or patio doors? You’re in the right place. When it comes to replacing, Marvin strives to make the best replacement windows and patio doors, from energy efficiency to durability the beautiful design.

THE BASICS

Today, there are established standards that make it much easier to see how various windows and doors stack up against each other. When shopping for your windows and doors take the following factors into consideration.

U-Factor

U-Factor correlates to the rate of heat transfer. The lower the number, the better a window is at keeping heat inside a building. The U-Factor is key in regions with cold winters. Just remember: the lower the U-Factor, the lower the rate of heat loss through a window.

This is a more important measuring tool than the R-value – which measures resistance to heat loss. Many people are familiar with the R-value because of its use in home insulation. But actually, for windows and doors, U-factor and solar heat gain coefficient are more important measurements.

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient measures how well a product blocks heat from the sun. In warm climates, the lower the number, the better. Here you want to keep heat out by choosing windows that reflect solar radiation. Less heat coming into the home means lower air-conditioning costs and a reduced carbon footprint. In cold regions, your windows can also help you take advantage of solar radiation, which is free heat that eases the workload of your furnace or other energy-powered heat source. A higher solar heat gain coefficient means a window will allow more heat to pass through.

Design Pressure Rating

Design pressure (DP) Rating measures the amount of pressure a door or window will withstand when closed and locked. Each DP rating also establishes other performance factors such as water penetration, air infiltration, structural pressure, forced entry and operational force. The higher the DP numbers, the better the performance. Look for the certified hallmark of the Window and Door Manufacturers Association.

Windows are one of the key elements to consider when looking to increase a home’s energy efficiency. Many factors come into play when choosing the right window from climate to desired conservation efforts. Marvin Windows and Doors is the leader in energy-efficient solutions. Know what to look for when choosing your next window.

Glass Efficiency

Know your climate. Different glass works best in different climates, so where you live impacts what you should buy.

Insulated Glass Coating

Coating a glass surface between each pane with Low E material can block a significant amount of heat transfer, reducing your home’s need for energy consumption.

New Energy Star Home Advisor

EPA’S ENERGY EFFICIENCY ACTION WEEK

A recent press release from the EPA (the US Environmental Protection Agency) announced the start of the Energy Star Home Advisor. Americans can use this an online tool to improve energy efficiency of their homes — saving money and energy at the same time. The tool recommends, customizes, and prioritizes home-improvement projects.

“As we enter the winter months, homeowners can use our new Energy Star Home Advisor to increase energy efficiency and save money while reducing greenhouse gas emissions that fuel climate change,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “When homeowners take advantage of this important tool and increase the energy efficiency of their homes, many families will notice savings on energy bills and improvements in the comfort of their homes.”

This updated version of the Energy Star Home Advisor has a “do it yourself” energy assessment. The Advisor leads the user (the homeowner) to create their own Energy Star home profile. Thus, recommended home improvements are customized. This profile is updated over time, showing the homeowner’s environmental improvements and successful energy-efficient choices constructed and integrated in their homes. They can get ongoing recommendations, and update future “to-do” lists. If one is selling the home, profiles can also be printed and effectively used. Who doesn’t want an improved energy-efficient home!

“The launch is part of EPA’s Energy Efficiency Action Week, during which EPA regional offices across the country will hold events to increase awareness about the energy and cost savings associated with energy efficiency upgrades, especially in the winter months,” the EPA press release noted.

More Energy Star tips for homeowners:

Products, homes, and buildings that earn the Energy Star label support environmental balance. They meet strict energy efficiency requirements set by the EPA. Janet McCabe, principal deputy assistant administrator for the Office of Air and Radiation, reminds us: “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.”

In an earlier post on Energy Star, “Energy Star Portfolio Manager Benchmarking Tool Gets An Upgrade,” we also referenced a “Portfolio Manager” too. “The new ‘turbo-charged’ Portfolio Manager makes it easier than ever for building owners and managers to make strategic business decisions that are good for the environment and good for the bottom line. Consistent with President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, this tool helps businesses cut wasted energy, reduce harmful carbon pollution, and save money.”

Green Building Elements also reports that the Home Performance with Energy Starprogram pairs homeowners looking to improve the energy efficiency of their homes with local contractors ready to assist them. “Local sponsors in 34 states will help homeowners assess their homes and then connect the homeowners with a reputable contractor. (Contractors that take a whole-house approach to improving energy efficiency.)”
