Energy Efficient Windows Lafayette

Saving money on energy bills is no simple task, but Window World is committed to helping you. Throughout Louisiana, Window World strives to provide energy efficiency, savings and beauty for your home. The new replacement windows have saved money and energy for homeowners throughout the state.

Save Money on Energy

Window World windows with the SolarZoneTM Insulated Glass Package is energy efficient and helps you save money! By adding Low-E glass to a standard insulating glass unit, your window energy performance will increase by 24%. Even further, adding argon gas filling to the window can increase efficiency another 6%. And lastly, by adding the Intercept™ Warm Edge Spacer System, another 5% can be saved! All together, Window World windows with the SolarZoneTM Insulated Glass Package is the most energy efficient window product on the market today- your efficiency can be increased by 35%!

ENERGYSTAR® Qualified SolarZoneTM Insulated Glass Package

What Makes the SolarZoneTM Insulated Glass Package So Effective?

The result of ENERGYSTAR® Qualified SolarZoneTM Insulated Glass Package is shown in your utility bills year round. Since windows are 80% glass, heating and cooling savings come from efficient glass performance. Our combination of UV-filtering Low-E Glass (LG), insulating argon gas and the InterceptTM Warm Edge Spacer System creates significant energy efficiency. With this, say goodbye to damaging effects of the sun on furniture, carpets and curtains.

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 keeps your home cooler by filtering long-wave radiation from the sun which reduces solar heat from the sun.
  • Low-E glass also warms your home in the winter months. It blocks the heat from escaping from inside your home and lets warm solar rays inside.

How does the Intercept™ Spacer System work?

  • U-channel design creates a thermal barrier to help effectively reduce conducted heat loss with its one-piece metal alloy.
  • The sealed one-piece design increases the ability and efficiency of retaining insulating gas than other designs.

How do Intercept™ Spacers add to room comfort?

  • Your home feels more comfortable in the winter because they keep the edges of the window glass warmer.
  • Compared to the edge of an insulating glass unit with an ordinary spacer and one with an Intercept™ spacer system, the temperature difference is drastic.

How do Intercept™ Spacers Help Windows to Last Longer?

Window heat emissions diagram
  • With temperature changes, LG units expand and contract.
  • The sealant holding the unit together in conventional insulating glass units together takes the stress of this flexing which can cause seal failure and insulating gas loss.
  • In an Intercept™ LG. unit, the spacer flexes instead of the sealant, which resists premature sealant failure and spacer movement.

Thermagraphy dramatizes the difference.

In the windows above, the heat transmittance is indicated by the yellow, green and orange colors from the heat scale. Heat transmittance is not a characteristic of a functional and efficient window. The window on the right, however, is the Solarban® 60 Low-E insulated glass unit, showing very low heat transmittance- leading to a more energy efficient window.
