Before: Old, drafty double pane windows let in cold air & lose heat during the autumn time. As the cold air enters the home, this change in temperature triggers the thermostat forcing your HVAC units to overproduce to balance the disparity leading to a spike in unnecessarily high gas & electricity bills.
After: With a triple-pane barrier, argon/krypton gas nsulation & Low-E Cardinal Glass, the pesky, bitter cold is forced outside where it belongs maintaining the exact temperature inside the home that keeps you comfortable year round saving you money on your energy bills!
A measure of the rate of non-solar heat loss or gain through a material or assembly. It is expressed in units of Btu/hr-sq ft-ºF (W/sq m-ºC). Values are normally given for NFRC/ASHRAE winter conditions of 0ºF (18º C) outdoor temperature, 70º F (21º C) indoor temperature, 15 mph wind and no solar load. The U-factor may be expressed for the glass alone or the entire window, which includes the effect of the frame and the spacer materials. The lower the U-factor, the greater a window’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.
The fraction of solar radiation admitted through a window or both directly transmitted or absorbed and subsequently released inward. It is expressed as a number between 0-1. The lower a window’s solar heat gain coefficient, the less solar heat it transmits and the greater its shading ability. Our windows are designed to keep you comfortable during the hottest months of the year while protecting your carpets, drapes and furniture from fading & discoloring from sun exposure.
The measure of the resistance of a glazing material or fenestration assembly to heat flow. It is the inverse of the U-factor (R = 1/U) and is expressed in units of hr-sq ft-ºF/Btu. A high-R-value window has a greater resistance to heat flow and a higher insulating value than one with a low R-value. Original windows have R-Values of 1-2 while Parallax performs at 4-6!
The percentage or fraction of the visible spectrum (380 to 720 nanometers) weighted by the sensitivity of the eye that is transmitted through the glazing. Our w is expertly engineered to block unwanted heat gain, help prevent fading & discoloring of carpets, drapes & furniture while keeping your home beautiful and bright!
Our windows maintained structural strength and integrity in tests simulating winds of over 155 mph. (This is the same wind speed reserved for Category 5 hurricanes by the National Hurricane Center). ASTM E 330. These tests were witnessed by independent testing laboratories utilizing the nationally recognized and accepted American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) test standards and criteria.
Our windows resisted water infiltration during a test in which the equivalent of eight inches of rain an hour is blown onto the window at a simulated wind speed of approximately 60 mph. ASTM E 547.
Our windows easily passed the rigorous air infiltration resistance testing procedure of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). ASTM E 283.
