Window World of New Orleans – Energy Efficient Windows

Installing new, energy efficient windows in your home is one of the best investments you can make in your home. At Window World of New Orleans, we offer a wide selection of different window styles with built-in technology to provide the best insulation for your home. Not only will you be able to maintain a more consistent and comfortable temperature, but you will also enjoy big savings on your energy bill. So, if you’re looking to beat the summer heat or escape the winter cold in New Orleans, energy efficient windows are an effective solution.

Why Choose Window World’s Energy Efficient Windows?

  • By adding Low-E glass to a standard insulating glass unit, you can improve the energy performance of your window year round by 24%.
  • Also, by adding argon gas filling to the window, which is a better insulator than normal air, you can increase the efficiency by another 6%.
  • And lastly, by adding the Intercept™ Warm Edge Spacer System, you can add yet another 5%!
  • That’s why your choice of ComfortWorld Windows with the SolarZone™ Insulated Glass Package is the most energy efficient window product on the market today!

ENERGYSTAR® Qualified SolarZone™ Insulated Glass Package

What Makes the SolarZone™ Insulated Glass Package So Effective?
Improving glass performance, which makes up about 80% of a window, can make a significant impact on your heating and cooling savings year-round. With the combination of UV-filtering Low-E Glass (LG), insulating argon gas and the Intercept™Warm Edge Spacer System, the SolarZone™ Insulated Glass Package can cut the damaging effects of the sun, which can lead to faded carpets, curtains and furniture.

Low energy windows winter
In winter, a warmer glass temperature is maintained, increasing the R-value by an additional 104%.
Low energy windows summer
In summer, a 48% reduction in solar heat gain helps cut air conditioning costs.

How does Low-E Glass (LG) work?

  • Low-E glass filters long-wave radiation from the sun. This reduces solar heat gain from the sun in the summer…keeping your home cooler:
  • Low-E glass keeps your home cooler in the summer
  • Low-E glass takes on a new duty in winter months. It lets warm solar rays into your home…while blocking the heat in your home from getting out:
  • Low-E glass keeps the heat from getting out in the winter

How does the Intercept™ Spacer System work?

  • Its one-piece metal alloy, U-channel design creates an effective thermal barrier to help reduce conducted heat loss.
  • Its sealed one-piece design makes it stronger and better at retaining insulating gas than many conventional designs.

How do Intercept™ Spacers add to room comfort?

  • They keep the edges of the window glass warmer, so your home feels more comfortable in winter.
  • The temperature difference between the edge of an insulating glass unit with an ordinary spacer, and one with an Intercept™ spacer system can be dramatic.

How do Intercept™ Spacers Help Windows to Last Longer?

    Window heat emissions diagram

  • LG units expand and contract with temperature changes.
  • In conventional insulating glass units, the sealant holding the unit together takes the stress of this flexing and can cause seal failure and insulating gas loss.
  • In an Intercept™ LG. unit, the spacer flexes instead of the sealant, so it resists spacer movement and premature sealant failure.

See the difference with thermography.
The window shown on the left is a clear insulated glass unit, and the window on the right is a Solarban® 60 Low-E insulated glass unit. You can clearly see the transmission of solar heat on the clear insulated glass window – indicated by the green, yellow and orange colors from the heat scale. When compared to the extremely low transmission of solar heat on the Solarban® 60 Low-E insulated glass unit, the best choice for your home is clear.
