Why Energy Efficient Windows Will Save You Money


Windows are one of the most attractive features of your home. They provide light, views, ventilation, and warmth from the sun during winter. Unfortunately, poorly selected windows can be a major source of heat loss in the winter, accounting for between 10 and 25 per cent of your heating bill. During summer, your air conditioners will be forced to work harder to cool the hot air indoors. Although energy efficient windows may cost a lot more initially, they will not only improve comfort and the usability of living space, but also save energy and minimise heating and cooling costs.

7 Benefits Of Using Double-Pane Glass


Double-glazed windows are made of two panes of glass with a layer of inert gas, mostly argon or krypton, sealed between them. Both the panes and the air gap are poor conductors of heat, and thus combine to ensure heat doesn’t cross through them, reducing the impact of outside environmental conditions on indoor temperatures. One major downside associated with this type of window is that it cannot be repaired if something happens and one of the panes becomes permeable. The glasses cannot be pulled apart for the escaped gas to be replaced; another window has to be installed. Benefits of…

The requirements differ by location, meaning a window installed in British Columbia is different in structure and requirements from one installed in Ontario. What is Energy Star®?

Household cleaners are among the most notorious contaminants of air, water and soil that humans and animals ultimately come into contact with. Asthma cases have in many instances been ascribed to continuous exposure to cleaner-related chemicals, some of which contain traces of carcinogens and developmental and reproductive poisons.
