Lower your Energy Costs! Introducing ALL-NEW LoE-i89™ Glass

energy efficient windows

We are always working to provide the most Energy Efficient windows on the market. Introducing LoE-i89™ our new energy-saving surface coated glass. It offers more light transmittance and less reflectance than most glass options.

During the 1980’s the introduction of low-emissivity (low-e) coatings was revolutionary, they slowed the emission of radiant energy. 37 years later the original technology has been improved for the best energy efficiency results that consumers expect.

According to Jeff Sadr (CEO of Window City), this glass provides a remarkably high visible transmittance of 89% – significantly higher than standard pyrolytic hard-coat low-e glass. He described this as a “sputtered hard-coat,” with the “i” standing for indium. The coating is durable and it doesn’t have the bluish tint that some people object to with pyrolytic hard-coat low-e.

LoE-i89 is the new generation of low-e glass, outperforming the others all year round, especially during the cold Canadian winter months. This new coating will be found on the inside surface (room side) where it reflects the escaping heat back into the room, lowering U-factors and meeting the toughest energy guidelines as well. Coupled with our LoE 180 and argon fill, this double pane unit delivers near triple pane performance. What’s more, LoE-i89™ enhanced performance glass is easy to clean and there is no haze to mar the view allowing more light to come into the room.

Benefits
  • Best for frigid climates
  • Keeps buildings naturally warmer in winter and reduces U-Values
  • Meets strict Energy Efficiency guidelines
  • Clearest surface without the haze
  • Can be left single-glazed to keep costs down and performs even better as a double glazed unit
  • Combines with other LoĒ options for the ultimate performance unit
  • Comes standard with Neat® self-cleaning technology
  • Best fading protection
  • Can meet the new proposed Energy Star guidelines throughout North America
  • Turn your double-pane windows into triple-pane

When shopping for your new windows or if you are in the process of building a new home look out for i89 glass coating; this type of coating helps trap in heat, saves energy and maintains consistent indoor temperatures.

9 Reasons Why You Need to Invest in Replacement Windows

How long has your home had their current set of windows? It’s easy to let the years pass by as you forgo replacement windows. However, there are some undeniable benefits of having those old leaky windows replaced with new energy efficient types. If you are undecided on replacing your homes windows, read the top 9 replacement windows benefits of this crucial home investment below!

Replacement Windows Benefits

1. Make Your Home Energy Efficient

Replacement windows can help make your home energy efficient, which is not only kinder on the environment, it’s also kinder on your wallet. Many types of windows help to insulate and regulate temperatures, putting less strain on your HVAC system. You can save up to 30% of your home heating and cooling costs with the right window system! We recommend vinyl windows over fiberglass, aluminum, or wood windows for the highest amount of energy savings. Multi-pane glass further contributes to energy savings, as the gas fills between the glass panes, and reduces any potential transfer. Make sure to check the Energy Star website for top rated energy efficient window manufacturers serving your area.

2. Increase the value of your home

If you are planning on selling or flipping your home in the next couple of years, there is no easier way to quickly up the value than by replacing old windows. Replacement windows can offer a 90% return on investment in terms of curb value. Make sure to invest wisely when shopping around for a window replacement. Research reputable manufacturers that are well established, offer lifetime warranties, and that carry reputable products and installations.

3. Maintain Consistent Indoor Temperatures

New, energy efficient windows will block up to 70% of solar heat gain, helping you keep your home consistently cool and keeping your HVAC system working efficiently. Worried about your furnace working overtime in the winter and costing you money in the form of monthly utility bills? Look out for i89 glass coating; this type of coating helps trap in heat and saves energy.

4. Protect Your Furniture

The sun can wreak havoc on your furniture, carpet, and curtain colours. To reduce the fading of colour and coating by up to 75%, look out for LowE glass coating for your replacement windows.

5. Block Noise and Keep Your Privacy

Outside noises, especially for those living in busy cities or intersections, can cause a real unwanted distractions in a home. Old, dated windows do little to keep outside noises out, and inside noises in. Make sure to maximize your home privacy and quiet by looking for multi-pane glass, which reduces conductive and convective heat losses. Sound transmission from the exterior to the interior and vice-versa will be greatly diminished, letting you live in peace and privacy. If you live in a particularly noisy area, look for glass options that help your acoustic rating, such as thick or laminated glass.

6. Added Security

Sadly, older conventional windows do little for your home security. Modern windows offer higher quality hardware that is close to impossible to open from outside. Laminated glass windows are ideal for a truly secure home; they can take up to 40 hits from a baseball bat before having their structural integrity effected. Multi-point locks also offer added strength and protection.

7. Clearer Views

Long term condensation can fog up home windows over time. Once you see the outside world through your new energy efficient windows, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t make the jump sooner!

8. Better functionality

Older windows can stall, stick, and overall do not open and close smoothly. Get rid of this unneeded hassle by upgrading!

9. Re-imagine Your Home

Your windows play a much bigger role in the look of your home than you would think. By replacing yours, you can recreate the whole design of your home, without the costly investment of renovations. Making a statement with style is easy, as long as you find a manufacturer who offers a variety of custom shapes, colours and options.
