Whether you’re buying replacement windows because your current windows are old, or you just bought a home and want windows to match the new design, there are several factors to think about during this process. Energy efficiency is among these, after deciding on the kind of design or aesthetic you want for your new windows, it is important to make sure that these windows will insulate your home and keep you comfortable regardless of weather - while helping you save money on heating or cooling costs all year and reducing your carbon footprint.


SIMONTON® Vinyl Windows are excellent for this, boasting impeccable design as well as industry-leading energy efficiency performance. Here are the energy efficiency facts from the Window Replacement Experts at California Replacement Windows, a SIMONTON® Authorized Dealer.


Factors to consider when shopping for energy efficient windows:


1. The glass is the most important part of an energy efficient window.

Glass packages have the greatest effect on your window’s energy efficiency. You may pay a little more for a great glass package up front, but you’ll save more in the long run. Here are a couple glass package options to keep in mind.


What is Low E?

Low-E reflects infrared light keeping heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer. It can also help keep your carpets and furniture from fading.


What is a Gas Fill?

Either Argon or Krypton can be placed in between glass panes to provide greater insulation than regular air.

SIMONTON® Vinyl Windows are long-lasting, energy efficient and can be customized to fit any size opening - and they will never need repainting.

2. Window frame material plays a key role.

Not all window materials are created equal. Windows come in a number of different materials, including vinyl, wood, aluminum, fiberglass and composite.


Vinyl window

Vinyl windows are long-lasting, energy efficient and can be customized to fit any size opening. And unlike wood windows, SIMONTON® Vinyl Windows will never need repainting.


Wood windows

Although they are energy efficient, wood windows are high maintenance. They have to be painted or stained regularly to remain protected from the elements.


Aluminum windows

Aluminum windows are low cost and low maintenance, but they offer the least energy efficiency of any window material.


Fiberglass windows

Fiberglass windows offer a strong window frame, but they’re going to cost you. You may pay a healthy 15-30% more for fiberglass windows than you would for vinyl windows.

Composite windows.

Composite windows combine different window materials to take advantage of the benefits of each window material. Although these windows typically perform well, they are the most expensive window in the market.


3. Consider ENERGY STAR® certified windows for the ultimate energy efficiency.


ENERGY STAR® is a government supported program that uses specific criteria to define an energy efficient window.

SIMONTON® Vinyl Windows are industry-leading products that have been certified by ENERGY STAR® in all regions!

How does ENERGY STAR® determine what makes energy efficient windows? By measuring four different parts of the window: the glass, the gas, the spacer and the reinforcement. The combination of these factors influences the window’s U-value and solar heat gain, both of which are drivers for meeting the ENERGY STAR® performance level.


To be labeled as an ENERGY STAR® product, the U-factor and SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) ratings must be less than or equal to those established by ENERGY STAR®. SIMONTON® Vinyl Windows are industry-leading products that have been certified by ENERGY STAR®.


What is U-value?

The U-value or U-factor is commonly described as the amount of heat transferred through a material. The lower the U-factor, the slower the rate of heat flow and the better the insulating value.


What is Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)?

The SHGC refers to the amount of heat from the sun that windows and doors allow into the home. The lower the number, the greater the ability to reduce the amount of heat absorbed into the home.
