Energy Efficient Windows – ThermaFlect
One of the top reasons to replace older existing windows is to increase energy efficiency. When it comes to choosing new replacement windows for your home, Millennium Home Design ENERGY STAR ® qualified ThermaFlect windows and doors will maximize your energy performance and decrease your heating and cooling costs.
Millennium Home Design’s energy efficient replacement windows provide high energy performance by using a combination of a Warm Edge spacer and High Performance ThermaFlect glass. These technologies are combined with an Argon gas fill which will decrease your heating and cooling costs allowing for maximum energy efficiency.
ThermaFlect – Millennium Home Design’s windows are made with ThermaFlect, a reflective coating on the glass that acts like an ozone layer. This keeps the energy on the same side of the glass it originates from but still allows all of the visible light to come through. When the sun shines, the heat from the rays are reflected outward. The same is true on the interior if you are running your heater during the winter months. ThermaFlect will reflect the warm air back to the inside of your home. UV rays are also kept out which can prevent fading in fabrics like furniture carpet, and window treatments.
Argon Gas – ThermaFlect replacement windows are filled with argon gas which is an expensive and odorless gas that is six times more dense than air and is used as insulation in between the layers of glass which therefore increases the energy efficiency, reduces the possibility of condensation and soundproofs the window.
Duralite (TM) Warm Edge Spacers – A very important feature in replacement windows, is the spacer material used to separate the panes of glass. Warm edge spacer material is a technology created to improve the U-Value in the window which improves condensation resistance and keeps your home comfortable in the intense summer heat and frigid cold winters. The lower the U-Value the better the energy savings. ThermaFlect window’s Duralite (TM) Spacer System has a .29 U-Value compared to SuperSpacer .31 and Aluminum SB .34.
