Understanding Energy Efficiency

The Technology

Science Behind The Savings

Windows
Doors
Siding

Low-E Glass

Low-E glass is brilliantly engineered to block most UV rays out so your home stays at a comfortable temperature each season.

Warm-Edge Spacer

Intercept™ warm-edge spacer insulates the exterior edges of a sealed unit and can tack on 5% savings on monthly energy costs.

Vinyl Framing

Vinyl window frames are constructed to deliver excellent thermal insulation while sealing out drafts and unwanted weather.

Innovative Weatherstripping

Airtight weatherstripping seals the sides, top and bottom frames of your door to prevent air infiltration.

Insulated Core

An insulated polyurethane core provides an additional thermal barrier for better insulation.

Sturdy Frames

Composite frames resist rotting, rusting and warping to withstand constant exposure to the elements.

Energy-Saving Door Lites

Decorative and ENERGY STAR-compliant door lites are an integral part in a door system’s seal and thermal performance.

Insulated Structure

Built with rigid foam insulation to reduce energy loss and reinforce the siding for smoothness and straight lines.

Energy-Saving Barriers

High-density insulation to minimize outdoor noise for a quieter indoor ambiance and loss of wanted heat or air.

Built to Last

Fully rolled over, double-thick nail hem anchors panels to the wall; tested to withstand harsh weather.


Optional SolarZone™ Insulated Glass Packages

The optional SolarZone insulated glass package combines multi-layered, vacuum deposition Low-E glass with argon gas and a warm-edge spacer system. These insulated glass packages have proven to be far more energy-efficient than ordinary clear glass units. Choose from:

  • SolarZone: Soft coat, multi-layer, vacuum deposition Low-E glass with argon gas and Intercept spacer system.
  • SolarZone ETC: Soft coat, multi-layer, vacuum deposition Low-E glass with argon gas, Intercept spacer system, and carbonized ETC liners.
  • SolarZone Elite: Soft coat, SHGC multi-layer, vacuum deposition Low-E glass with argon gas and Intercept spacer system.
  • SolarZone TG2: Soft coat, multi-layer, vacuum deposition triple pane unit with two surfaces of Low-E glass and two air spaces of argon gas and Intercept spacer system.
  • SolarZone TG2 Elite: Soft coat, multi-layer, vacuum deposition triple-pane unit with one surface SHGC and one surface Low-E glass and two air spaces of argon gas and Intercept spacer system.

Why Are the SolarZone Insulated Glass Packages Effective?

Since 80% of a window is glass, substantial heating and cooling savings come from improved glass performance.

  • Our combination of UV-filtering Low-E glass, insulating argon gas, and a warm-edge spacer system can cut damaging UV energy by over 75%.
  • The center of glass U-Value of SolarZone Insulating Glass is 50% better than standard insulating glass.
  • In summer, up to a 58% reduction in solar heat gain helps reduce air conditioning costs.

Climate Requirements

Interested in Becoming ENERGY STAR® Certified?

ENERGY STAR is a government-sanctioned symbol for energy efficiency, credibility, sustainability, and cost-savings for the consumer. Explore the requirements to become ENERGY STAR-certified below and see what it looks like in your region of the country.

U-Value
R-Value
Your Climate

U-Factor Requirements

U-Factor measures the rate at which heat flows through an object. The lower your U-value, the less heat your windows allow through them.

  • Northern: ≤ .27
  • North-Central: ≤ .30
  • South-Central: ≤ .30
  • Southern: ≤ .40

R-Value Requirements

R-Value determines how well the insulation inside your window is performing. The higher your R-value, the better insulated your window is.

  • Northern: 13 – 21
  • North-Central: 13 – 21
  • South-Central: 13 – 21
  • Southern: 13 – 21

Why You Need A High-Performing Insulated Product

Window World of Space Coast is located in ENERGY STAR’s Southern Climate category. To maintain certification here, our windows and doors must maintain a U-Value of ≤ .40 and an R-Factor from 13 to 21.


Glossary Of Terms

Energy Efficiency Terms You Need To Know

Low-E Glass

Low-E glass is a type of glass that has been treated with a microscopic, metallic coating designed to filter certain types of light into your home. The glass blocks heat gain from the sun’s reflected rays in warmer months and allows warmth from the sun’s shorter rays to flow into your home during cooler seasons.

Warm-Edge Spacer System

The Intercept™ Spacer System features a unique, one-piece metal alloy, U-channel design that creates an effective thermal barrier to help reduce conducted heat loss through the window. Its sealed, one-piece design makes Intercept spacers stronger and better at retaining insulating gas than many conventional designs. The Intercept Spacer System is nearly 25% more effective than a traditional box-shaped spacer at the edge of the glass unit.

Foam Spacer System

The optional Foam Spacer System is unique in its patented design. By combining a structural foam spacer with a seal of hot melt butyl to create a non-conductive edge, the non-metal Foam Spacer System eliminates any metal to glass contact, thereby increasing the edge of glass temperatures by over 16 degrees, which proves to be over 60% more energy-efficient than a traditional box-shaped spacer.

Argon Gas

Argon is a colorless, odorless, and nonreactive insulating property with extremely high density and extremely low thermal conductivity, making it an ideal agent for year-round comfort.
