Our Vinyl Windows Help Insulate Tempe, AZ, Homes & Lead to Monthly Energy Savings
Energy-efficient windows are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners nationwide, but Arizona residents shouldn’t buy the first ones they see on TV or online. Why not? Because not all insulated replacement windows are designed to perform at their best in every climate. If you see a window ad with a backdrop in what looks like the Pacific Northwest, those products may not help you much in Tempe. But at FOR Energy, we install vinyl windows that are not only made here, they’re also designed FOR here!
How These Vinyl Windows Help Insulate Your Home
The goal of any insulated window is to control a phenomenon called heat transfer (or “thermal transfer”), which simply refers to warm air’s tendency to move into colder spots to strike a balance in the area’s temperature. It can do this through your home’s windows if they aren’t properly insulated, which means it will infiltrate your home in the summer and escape outside in the winter.
The vinyl windows we install meet ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency, reducing heat transfer to keep that warm air wherever you want it. They do so with the following features:
- Low-E glass coatings
- Argon gas fills between each pane
- Insulated frames
- Sealed sashes
Alternative Options to Increase Your Windows’ Energy Efficiency
At FOR Energy, we understand that many homeowners who need the energy efficiency and other benefits of our vinyl windows may not have room for them in their budgets at the moment. That’s why we offer a slate of alternatives, such as:
- Exterior blinds
- Storm window panels
