Description

Installing windows that only meet the minimum Building Code performance requirements is common. Specifying higher-performing insulated glazing units and window frames could help us lift our game.

Windows provide more than just a view on the world outside. They need to multi-task, bringing in light, allowing solar gain as free winter heat, admitting fresh air and limiting heat loss in winter.

Scope

This article includes:

  • Weak link in thermal performance
  • Insulating Glass Units (IGUs) offer benefits
  • Making the better choice
  • Skylights
  • What's happening overseas?
  • Window ratings matter
  • Does your glass have a low-E coating?
