The Benefits Of Insulated Windows

Insulated Roofing And Window Heat Loss Benefits

If we talk about the benefits of window insulation, we must first say that there is a unit called “R-value” that is used to measure the efficiency of the insulation: a higher R value represents a greater thermal resistance. For example, a single-pane window has a value of about R-1. Additional glass panes will increase the degree of insulation, even up to R-11.

Insulated windows can be an expensive investment for your home, but they are significantly more efficient to prevent heat losses in the cold season and keep the heat out in the hot season. Single-pane windows are not energy efficient, favoring air transfer. Replacing them with insulated windows will reduce heating and cooling costs and will also help reduce fossil fuel consumption, slowing carbon emissions that contribute to global climate disruption.

The efficient insulation of a window not only prevents heat loss, but also regulates the temperature of the surface of the interior glass. Without large amounts of heat loss caused by air transfer or convection, insulated windows provide comfortable and constant temperature throughout the home, increasing comfort and reducing energy bills. Also, the insulated windows make it possible to maintain a higher humidity level in the houses. The result is better air quality and a reduced risk of condensation on the surface of the windows.  Remember to have a local Gaithersburg roofing company out to inspect your roof as well, to make sure you do not have heat loss there either.
