Renovating windows are the most essential part of having a cost efficient home. It’s very easy for heat to escape through our windows when they are old and beaten by our rough climates. At Eco Elite we carry top quality windows of all shapes and sizes. The different materials we provide are PVC, Aluminum and Hybrid to fulfil each of our customer’s needs. All our windows are Energy Star certified with LOW-E glass and ARGON GAS in between each pane.
WHAT IS LOW-E?
Low-E stands for Low Emissivity, which measures how much a glass surface transfer’s radiant heat. Typically the less radiant heat transferred, the better your home will be insulated. Low-E is a transparent thin coating that is placed on the inside of your window and helps block the transfer of radiant heat. As a result, your home is warmer during the winter and cooler in the summer.
WHAT IS ARGON GAS?
Argon gas is a non-toxic element that’s inserted between the double panes of your window to increase energy efficiency. The gas will minimize heat exchange between the inside and outside of your home and will reduce condensation and frost on the windows.
