Windows with lots of natural light provide so many benefits, but sometimes you have to make a few adjustments to get the most of these windows. Window replacement contractor StateWide Energy Solutions shares some tips on how to do so:
Your home’s front entrance commands the most attention from the street. This is why buying a quality entry door is a must. Doing so can boost your home’s curb appeal and value, similar to what energy efficient windows can bring.
On the first part of Statewide Energy Solutions’s special blog about window energy ratings, you learned about what U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient are. Also, you discovered that the lowest (best) values of these ratings are practically impossible to find in a window.
U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) are the major ratings that determine whether windows can be considered energy-efficient. These measurements can be found on the label provided by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), which every ENERGY STAR®-certified window should have.
