What gets measured and why it matters
The windows you are replacing probably have single pane or dual pane clear glass. Let’s look at what performance standards we measure and how your old windows (didn’t) perform well.
Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) If we didn’t want light to come through, we would have built a wall, right? The higher the percent, the more light is passing through the glass.
Single pane – 67% Dual Pane Clear – 63%
U-Factor measures how well a product prevents heat from escaping. The rate of heat loss is indicated in terms of the U-Factor (or U-Value) of a window assembly. The lower the U-Value, the greater the window’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.
Single pane – .83 Dual Pane Clear – .46
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) Solar radiation, whether directly transmitted or absorbed and re-radiated, can make a room too hot. The lower a window’s solar heat gain coefficient, the less solar heat it transmits.
Single pane – .67 Dual Pane Clear – .62
UV Block Invisible, yet harmful, ultraviolet (UV) rays found in every day sunlight can damage paint finishes and cause furniture, carpet and window treatments to fade. The higher the percent, the more harmful UV rays being blocked.
Single pane – 29% Dual Pane Clear – 39%
When considering new windows you need to decide: WOULD YOU LIKE FULL FRAME OR INSERT REPLACEMENT WINDOWS?”
Insert Replacement: This type of installation involves leaving the frame of the existing window in your home and removing only the sash. A new insert or “pocket” window is then installed inside of your existing window frame leaving the existing frame, trim, and surrounding materials.
Full Frame Replacement: Involves entire window frame replacement, sash, and trim or casing with a new full-frame window
Replacing your windows is large financial investment. Cost can be a large factor in determining whether to select full frame or insert windows. The insert replacement window cost will likely save you money on your project. You will save on these three things:
1. Materials – Insert windows make it easy so there is no need to do an entire window frame replacement, whereas full frame replacement involves removing the frame, trim and casing which may need to be replaced.
2. Time – Insert window installation takes significantly less time when compared to the time necessary to demolish and rebuild the window opening in a full frame replacement.
3. Repair – Insert window installation will have a minimal affect the interior and exterior of your home. In a full frame replacement some interior drywall and exterior siding may need to be reconstructed.
About 95% of all home owners choose “replacement Style” to help minimize the cost of their window project.
